Scale Rail International - Launch Issue
This ensured a small but loyal group of readers. So loyal, that when Chris retired from publishing, over a curry, they decided to have a go in a similar vein themselves.
Scale Rail International is the result.
A5 in size and with 38 pages plus covers, the content is a eclectic as ever. Christopher Payne, well known for his fantastic atmospheric NG layouts, looks at a possible French prototype with 2 different gauges. There's more French NG, some Czechoslovakia in continental TT plus Peter Bossom doing something British in British TT.
Even when a more conventional subject appears, such as the Class 37 diesel, it's tied to a feature suggesting a suitable small layout to use it on.
For anyone interested in oddball modelling prototypes and unusual layout, this will be well worth keeping an eye on.
SRI isn't available in the high street shops (you might find it in some model shops) - contact email@example.com for subscription details. Price is £21.60 for 6 issues.
