Garden Rail - April 2018
Plenty of excellent stuff in this month's Garden Rail.
Our main layout is the 71 mile track laid for The Biggest Little Railway in the World TV series. One of the stars, Andy Christie spills the beans on his role in the show - mainly as one of the top link team charged with driving the loco to success. Not before he helped build a couple of the super structures shown, the 60 metre long viaduct and s-shaped trestle bridge.
We also demob a WW1 "Tin Turtle", turn Timpo coaches into light railway G1 models, assembled a GVT van and couple of kits from Harecroft, visit a G3 open day and examine scales and gauges for the larger scales. The last feature includes something I've never known before - a watercolour painting commissioned from artist Rob Bennett.
Top this off with loads of tempting new products and finish with a wagon for carrying chocolate eggs. Well, it is nearly Easter after all...
