Signal Box and more Handyman Hall in Hornby Magazine
My contributions are a Parkers Guide on building a Ratio signal box and a Coopercraft platelayers hut. You also get part 2 of the Handyman Hall railway feature where we take the layout from bare plaster to a finished model.
The signal box is a particularly interesting kit. I really enjoyed building it and think that despite its age, it would be a really good basis for a very high quality model. That's not to say there is anything wrong with what you get, just that there is loads of potential as well. Detail the inside, perhaps replace the locking room windows, add some telegraph wires and somewhere for the point roding to exit, that sort of thing.
Elsewhere, you get loads of reviews including LMS 10000, Derby Lightweight DMU, Baby Deltic and Class 22. I only have a kit stashed away for one of those...
