Magazine Description

In this issue

"The Southern Federation AGM is more than just an AGM this year as plenty of activities are laid on for younger members and the Polly Model Engineering awards are presented; Matthew and Peter Kenington report. Terence Holland prepares the artwork and sets to with etching a set of plates for Douglas, his 5 inch gauge Barclay well tank. Alan Reid tells how the Isle of Man club made their railway more accessible for wheelchair users by devising a dual purpose carriage. Luker builds a 7¼ inch gauge model of a Stirling seven foot single locomotive. Getting close enough to get a good photograph of a small part can be a problem but Bob Reeve demonstrates how it may be done. Mike Tilby considers the losses in steam turbines and explains the differences in this respect between full-size and miniature turbines. Doug Hewson presents a new and more authentic design of boiler for his 5 inch gauge GWR pannier tank. Graham Sadler makes a spindle hand crank for his Myford lathe and discusses the subject of files and filing. Roger Backhouse takes a ride on the Snaefell Mountain Railway on the Isle of Man and ascends to the Laxey mines."
