396 On from Bridport Plan of the Month Modellers have used the planned but never-built main line which would have run west of Dorchester along the English Channel coast towards Exeter since the 1950s, when John Charman built his Mk.I version of Charford.

398 Tees Steel John Collins of the Cleveland Model Railway Club wanted to replicate in miniature the steelmaking industry of his locality in the north-east. This lengthy OO gauge layout, with some sizeable buildings, is the result.

404 Trees from pan scourers Project of the Month Rachael Holloway-Reid, a member of the ‘home team’ in Series 1 of The Great Model Railway Challenge, the Fawley Fliers, demonstrates how this economical method of tree-making has encouraged her to continue scenic modelling even after the cameras have stopped rolling.

406 Widdiford After several decades of modelling German railways of many flavours, Peter Martin was tempted back to UK outline OO gauge by the quality and quantity of models of prototypes he remembered from his youth. His layout is operated by sophisticated digital control including route setting software.

417 Comment Opinions and observations across the field of railway modelling. This month, Tim Rayner celebrates the art of researching using books in addition to the internet.
