Garden Rail June


Is this real, or is this a model? That's the question you'll be asking when looking at the amazing Dyfrdwy Tramway built by James Hilton. The superb modelmaking is accompanied by an imaginative history that explains the line.

Practical articles cover checking a model steam locomotive to ensure it's safe to operate, building a transporter wagon complete with load, a sugar cane wagon and a trick to ensure your trains stay on the track.

Talking of track, if you have ever looked at old photos of narrow gauge lines with the rails just poking through the undergrowth and wondered how to model this, our green-fingered expert has all the details.

All this and more in the June issue of Garden Rail.
