Magazine Description

In this issue

Hotspur makes a ‘pintle’ for attaching the outer dome of his 5 inch gauge Beattie well tank to the inner dome and makes a set of LSWR front lamp irons. Jon Freeman shows how the performance and efficiency of a locomotive petrol/electric generating set can be improved. Ron Fitzgerald shows how iron master John Wilkinson revolutionised the steam engines produced by James Watt. Stewart Hart makes a very fancy vertical beam for his grasshopper haulage engine. Roger Backhouse takes a trip over to the Isle of Man to take a ride on the island’s steam railway. Luker constructs the valve gear for his 5 inch gauge American 4-4-0 locomotive. Jacques Maurel improves his drilling machine, starting off by considering how to get a better set of speed reduction ratios. Mark Smithers continues his look at the history of the Hunslet locomotive company by considering the development of the ‘Alice’ class of locomotives. Peter Rigby is inspired by a rainy afternoon to design and construct a mechanical rain gauge. Norm Norton continues his rework of a Modelworks ‘Britannia’ steam locomotive by improving the piston valves. Joseph-Jean Pâques investigates the possibility of constructing a copper boiler without using the usual flanged plates.
