Magazine Description

In this issue

A terrific photographic feature on a splendid Sentinel Steam Waggon features this issue, and we gave it pride of place on the cover too. Ian Day completed the model some years ago and it has run for many hundreds of trouble free miles since. Look out for it on the rally fields of southern England this summer and go and have a close look. The long running construction series on the Allan Brothers’ semi-Diesel engine comes to a close as Frank Cruickshank adds the finishing touches, and, as something of a post-script, offers an analysis of helical gears in models. Jacques Maurel guides the reader through the construction of his taper turning attachment and Dennis Stones makes a miniature change-over valve in plastic. In 2018 the Welsh Highland Railway will be celebrating a milestone in its history as it reaches its 21st season running some of the most powerful locomotives on British preserved railways. The occasion will be marked by a special ‘Superpower’ event to take place in Autumn next year and at the end of this fascinating article by Dave Kent, an invitation goes out to all builders, owners and drivers of model articulated locomotives. Many readers will empathise with Ted Jolliffe as restricted mobility following a heart attack left him unable to spend more than a few minutes in the workshop. After adapting an inexpensive chair he is now able to spend much longer in there. Candlesticks! And how they work! A short article on the refurbishment and redesign of a set of six for an Oxfordshire church, plus the repair of another. There’s more CNC for beginners and Southam gains some intricate detailing. All this and more… !
