It's interesting the variety of layouts we get to feature in Garden Rail. This month I've chosen a portable model that despite it's small size - 10ft by 3ft 6 - still looks good and allows live steam to be run. It very much ticks the "Layout's Phil would like to build" box.
Another dream project is the PDF Models Hunslet which looks fantastic. Surface finishing took a while according to the write-up, but the results are well worth it.
I've also got to try out the LocoRemote system and am really impressed. Who needs DCC?
(The sharp eyed might spot this isn't the final version of the cover. Yes, I know.)
