In Print Again

At your local newsagent you will find not one but two exciting opportunities to read about our layouts.

Our models of the FR and WHR are featured in a new special magazine from the publishers of Model Rail (who also happen to be the same media giant I work for) called Great British Model Railways.

It is packed with some of the very best of Chris Nevard's photography which can also be found in the current September edition of Model Rail itself which also features an article on the FR's 150th anniversary of steam celebrations and a piece I wrote about the collection of locomotive and rolling stock we are building up for Bron Hebog.

This features Garratts and the latest WHR super-sized carriages posing rather improbably on the spiral at Dduallt.

I wonder how many of their readers will spot that?

  1. I spotted it in the latest Model Rail magazine. The pictures do look convincing and came as a nice surprise as I have never seen the WHR stock pictured on Dduallt like this.

    However, I found the "Ffestiniog 150" feature put together by Model Rail rather misleading. The page before your article reads "Turn the page for an inspirational FR layout". The Dinas Junction 'Masterplan' states the NWNGR started from Porthmadog as well.

    Nevertheless, it is great to see narrow gauge modelling in mainstream print.
