Karl Crowther    [Publisher: Cygnet Magazines]    Magazine

Karl Crowther is in the editorial chair once more, and leads with a thought provoking and uplifting piece on the benefits that visiting exhibitions and involvement in the wider hobby offers us all. The main article is an update on developments on Hywel Thomas's wonderful "Morfa Bank Sidings" featuring a canal and locks running through the centre of the layout - jaw droppingly good modelling. Other features include an examination of the coal drops on Karl's Hebble Vale Goods, the award winning "Mill" layout by Jason Thomas and Chris Rogers (also with well modelled coal drops), a glimpse of Edge Hill and a retrospective on operation at Dewsbury Midland from Bob Essery. Constructional articles are Pete Jary on building a bunch of 7mm scale banana vans and Adam Chapman scratchbuilding a Swindon built Lowmac, an inspiring mixture of fretting out brass, plastikard wrangling and the odd commercial casting - all of which produces a superb result and makes me want to take the piercing saw of its hook and get going. In addition, small suppliers forum, diary, letters and an obituary to mark the sad passing of Chris Crofts back in February, the author of the seminal series on scratchbuilding wagons in MRJs 12-15.
