We visit three railways – Jeremy Buck’s Magdalen Road railway, the Apedale Valley Light Railway and the Daresbury track of the Warrington and District Model Engineers.
Keith Rogers improves the draughting on his 3½ inch gauge Darjeeling Himalayan Class ‘B’ locomotive. Geoff Theasby visits the Kelham Island Museum in Sheffield and learns a bit more about two engineering giants, Joseph Bramah and Henry Maudslay. Brian Rose constructs a 1:1 scale model of a Victorian Windermere-style gentleman’s steam launch. Hotspur continues work on the bunker and well tanks for his 7¼ inch gauge Beattie 2-4-0 locomotive. Our visit to Jeremy Buck’s Magdalen Road railway continues with the story of the restoration of a 5 inch gauge A3 locomotive, no. 2750 Papyrus. Ian Couchman machines the rather complex cylinder for his redesigned feed pump for a Ruston Proctor traction engine. David Haythornthwaite completes the parallel motion for his 1 inch scale Model Engineer beam engine. Martin Ranson makes the boilers for his pair of 32mm ‘Pepperpot’ locomotives. Mark Smithers attends the Moseley Railway Trust’s golden jubilee, held at the Apedale Valley Light Railway. Ron Fitzgerald continues the story of the development of the Newcomen engine. Ashley Best discusses the motive power for his 1/16 scale Brill tram truck. John Arrowsmith takes a trip to Daresbury to visit the Warrington and District Model Engineering Society.
