Fancy a read? You can watch, too – thanks to WOR TV*. Here's a look at what's inside your September 2022 issue...
*with WOR TV, exclusive for subscribers and digital edition viewers. See details here.
Included for subscribers and digital edition viewers is your monthly episode of World of Railways TV. This month, Howard Smith visits Making Tracks II and speaks with Pete Waterman about the project, Phil Parker demonstrates how to make a removable wagon load, and we take a closer look at what’s involved in driving a 5in gauge steam locomotive!
Southgate Park (OO). Purchasing a second-hand layout, minus wiring diagram, was the first of many challenges for the duo of Shane Wilton and Mark Miller.
Mantles Wood (OO). Paul Davis wasn’t defeated by his layout vision, despite admitting to limited modelling skills. Thanks to proprietary models, his efforts have flourished.
Hadley, Stonybrook, and Swale (O-16.5). Modernising this creation for a smoother, more reliable exhibition experience, is an ongoing process for its new owner, Arline Wilson, with enjoyable results.
Hook Basin (1:25 scale). Encouraged by a friend to scratch-build a freelance locomotive, Richard Williams soon turned his attention to this photogenic layout in the same scale.
Keen as ever to share our techniques with you, this issue we show how to create a church scene, build a cinema for your layout, wire a DCC return loop and upgrade your die-cast vehicles. There's a few tips on how you can cut the cost of your modelling, too!
Plus, inside this issue, we catch up with model club, Stafford Railway Circle, and visit Chester Cathedral to see the latest incarnation of Pete Waterman's West Coast Main Line layout – Making Tracks II.
Making Tracks II – interview with Pete Waterman in this issue. WOR Plus members can log in on World of Railways to watch the full video interview.
Look out for our reviews of the new Accurascale HCA and CDAs, Peco's all-new TT range, IRM's Magnesite hoppers and the new SBR hoppers from Peco.
