HM183 - September 2022
Hornby Magazine and Scalescenes present a brand new 4mm scale kit for ‘OO’ gauge layouts which models a low relief terrace shop which can be used as part of the backdrop on almost any town-based model railway. JOHN WIFFEN explains how to build this brick structure using the free kit included with this issue.
The layout line-up for the 2022 Great Electric Train Show on October 8/9 at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes continues to expand with the latest additions headlined by Simon Paley’s brand-new modern day Southern Region layout, Collingwood.
With the build racing ahead, it was time to pause for reflection giving time to complete the more mundane tasks on this new ‘OO’ layout. RICHARD WATSON plods on with the essential but repetitive tasks.

EVAN GREEN-HUGHES looks more closely at British Rail’s Mk2 Driving Brake Second Opens.
