Just had a quick perusal and looks to be very interesting. I have bookmarked the site so I can have a proper read when I am 'working' nights.  :thankyousign:

I made the mistake of trying to explore this straight away. Addictive stuff for sure. Stopped exploring and bookmarked for later.

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

I had the loan of the complete set some years ago, it is a very interesting read especially when reading the opinions of their view of the future of railways.

I had the set which my father had collected from new.  I read them over and over as a child.  I believe Mum gave them away during a house move after I'd left home.

I've got two hardback volumes of this publication which I inherited from a Great Uncle who used to work on the railways (GER/LNER/BR) but they are undated.
Thought they were mid-1930's from the articles in them but at least I know what years they were published now!
