Issue 135 is being despatched this week. We lead this issue with a superb model of a Swedish station building in 1:45 scale with fine detail that includes inside furniture, wallpaper and lighting. On the practical side Tim Shackleton gives us an insight into quick-fix trees and Giles Favell provides a solution to quartering outside cranks. Regular contributor Stuart Baker has drawn an unusual small Bagnall built for Uruguay. We also include historical photos of the Chattenden & Upnor Railway from regular contributor Sydney Leleux and a study into ‘poor track’ so often found on industrial systems. We also have further track studies on 'Mainline' NG systems and multi-gauge museum systems, plus the usual jottings, product and book reviews and readers' letters
