Didsbury Green continues in BRM and I go to Pendon
Wiring up is this months job. I've built a control panel too, and being an unusual layout, it's not the standard box hanging on the back, but a built-in unit that provides somewhere to put the switches and a useful view-blocker for the entrance from the fiddle yard.
I've also taken a look at lighting with LEDs, perfect for a tiny model but requiring a bit of experimentation.
Over in the review corner, I take a look at Bachmann's new range of 009 wagons.
Finally, your DVD see's me going all Portillo with a trip to Pendon.
Andy York and I spent the day looking behind the scenes and chatting with the people responsible for the world-famous model.We even manage to end up in the pub!
As an aside, I do have to laugh at the keyboard warriors responding to suggestions that Pendon is the worlds best model railway with "WHEN WAS THAT VOTE HELD????".
Anyway, loads of good stuff in the February issue of BRM.
