Magazine Description

In this issue

"Chris Rayward attends to the platform brackets and buffer beams for his 5 inch gauge LNWR ‘D’ tank locomotive. Graham Sadler decides to simplify the lubrication of his Myford lathe and Bridgeport milling machine. Martin Gearing, having completed his vertical boiler and integrated it into his steam plant, tests the boiler and gives it its first run. Mick Knights reaches the point where he needs to make the supporting frame for his quarter scale Bentley BR2 rotary aero engine and sets to with some seriously large billets of aluminium. Luker explains how he made the boiler for his 7¼ inch gauge Stirling seven foot single locomotive and why he chose to make it of stainless steel. John Arrowsmith visits the South Cheshire model engineering society and finds a club buzzing with activity. David Haythornthwaite tackles the challenging task of machining the fluted connecting rod for his 1 inch scale Model Engineer beam engine. Rhys Owen continues his survey of locomotive boiler explosions – why they happen and what happens when they do. Jon Freeman gives an overview of the design choices made for his 5 and 7¼ inch gauge petrol-electric locomotive and explains why he chose to use brushless DC motors."
