FEATURES

BRAGGELS BAENKE
Gerard Tombroek describes the Dutch HO layout built by Ger Luken (with a little help from some friends) to display his collection of kit-built locomotives. This layout will be among those at the Warley NEC show.
 
ELEVADOR DO BOM JESUS DO BRAGA
Paul de Groot often chooses unusual or exotic subjects, and likes a modelling challenge, but this latest project in O scale could be his most technically ambitious yet. This layout will be among those at the Warley NEC show.
 
LARAMIE ENGINE TERMINAL
A small section of Wyoming in the 1950s – visual impact (‘wow’ factor) is key to the O scale peninsula-style layout created by Peter Kirmond to house the ‘Big Boys’. This layout will be among those at the Warley NEC show.
 
GAUGE 1 MODULES
A sawmill and a town scene – sections of a large project, a modular layout by the Leuvense Spooreen Vrienden. These scenes are due to be at the Warley NEC show.
 
PHOENIX JUNCTION
A small but busy American HO switching yard – Mike Wyldbore relates how he developed a layout after his interest in model railways was rekindled. See this layout at the Spalding show.
