Model Railway Journal 256

Jerry Clifford    [Publisher: Cygnet Magazines]    Magazine

Jerry Clifford in the editorial chair, Homer nodded a bit on the cover but nothing to detract from a vintage issue. The cover picture is of Gordon Gravett's wonderful "Arun Quay", due to appear at the Uckfield show on 21st and 22nd October next. Contents are varied, featuring the bucolic Nettlebridge Valley in P4, a lovely Taff Vale Steam Railmotor, Giles Favell motorising a crane in 7mm scale, two varieties of 2mm coaches, the very talented John Birkett Smith on buildings and townscapes in the smaller scales, scratchbuilding Highland brakes in S and a brief update on the Cameo competition from Iain Rice.

The Wantage Tramway

Nicholais de Courtais    [Publisher: Wild Swan]    Softback

A much enlarged edition of the author's 1981 book describing and illustrating the roadside tramway that ran fron the Great Western main line at Wantage Road to the town of the same name. Indisputably one the most idiosyncratic and delightful of Britain's diverse collection of light railways and tramways, this new edition contains a wonderful collection of images together with a surprisingly large number of recollections of both using and working on the line, collected over a period of years by the indomitable Chris Turner. Hopefully this will prove irresistable to followers of light railways and quaint English institutions alike!
