Mersysider, OO6.5mm wagons and some garden stuff in Narrow Gauge World
Sometimes, I even manage to contribute material for the pages, or at least this month, allow the editor access to my files to pick up useful copy!
Working on Garden Rail and BRM, there's quite a lot of potential cross-over between the various magazines and it would be daft not to make use of this where possible. Let's face it, none are big-budget publications so pooling resources very occasionally makes sense.
My efforts are to be found in the modelling section unsurprisingly. First up, we have my review of Roundhouse Engineerings "Mersysider" diesel.
Andrew has taken this and used his knowledge to enhance my original text as well as providing a top pun in the title, something I very much approve of.
When I reviewed the Narrow Planet 00 6.5 wagons in BRM, we weren't able to give them a huge amount of space. Let's face it, 18-inch gauge railways are a bit niche for the readership. They are far more interesting to NGW readers though, so I took the chance to put a larger piece in here.
Finally, there are loads of my photos showing models from The Lineside Hut and Bole Laser Craft taken at the 16mm AGM. When manufacturers take the time to produce models based on proper prototypes, it's important to let those interested in those same prototypes know that the kits are available after all.
