Build a Barclay and look under the sink
Yes, I have the original mags, but a lot of them are in storage and flicking through those on the shelf isn't as quick as banging some keywords into that box on the top left of the screen.
Anyway, a couple of pieces to mention. First, in the June 2017 issue of Narrow Gauge World, I've written up building the O16.5 Barclay loco constructed some time ago. In many ways this is the series of blog posts edited and with a bit more useful information. And a lot less typos. That's the difference between what goes on here and a properly edited and curated magazine.
This article has been kicking around for years and finally found a home. Admittedly, not much of the original was left by the time I submitted it but then ideas, materials and my skills have changed a lot in that time!
All this magazine variety is going to be one of the casualties of my new roles with EIM and GR. It's time to concentrate on the new (to me) publications and stop messing around elsewhere.
