Craig Tiley constructed this 4mm scale structure from a Smart Models download-and-print-yourself set of PDFs obtainable from the firm’s website.

Pecketts, Barclays and Bullhead

Ellarry Cove and Ellarry Town
Behind Mick Clarke’s railway room door lies his latest twin-deck N gauge layout, full of detail and linked to its fiddle yard with helixes.

This homage to the glory days of the Great Central’s London Extension was built by Andrew Eames partially in his railway den, but with a couple of loops outside to increase the length of run for trains – ‘ords’ and all.

A Great Central signal box
Ian Clark built this essential structure for his latest 4mm scale project by beginning with a Wills kit and adding modifications from scratch to replicate a typical GC box.

'Plan of the Month'
James Hilton suggests that the present-day northern terminus of the Dean Forest Railway would make a good layout, using his own illustations as a guide.

Will Heath introduced his N gauge retirement project in last month’s issue; now he gives an insight into how complex electronic modules control his model of this landmark junction on the former Great Western.

Cwm Bach
Chris Klein tells editor Steve Flint why he ventured into the South Wales Valleys in 7mm scale, in the shape of this terminus and colliery interchange layout.

Inspired by his formative years watching Western Region steam, David Tully built this OO layout on which to run many trains at once.

Paper, scissors, rock!
Craig Tiley built a lightweight and very effective rockface using scrunched-up heavy paper (250gsm) and artistry with paint.
