Issue 132 - Published Oct 2022

This issue is an American special. The lead article is an exhaustive study into the history of Yellow Aster Gold Mine with unusual 18ins and 30ins railways including mixed gauge track and slewing switches. The Maine two-footers are well covered by a new drawing of the SR&RL Baldwin No.24 by Stephen Phillips, and Bob Harper describes his On2 layout of a proposed and part-built extension to the SR&RL. We have drawings of the ALCO War Dept 2-6-2T in as-built form and as varied in subsequent lives on two French systems. Gerald Harper completes the story of his British Colombian On3 mine layout as featured in REVIEWs 129-131. Stuart Firth presents his project for an HO dock switching layout based on the Santa Fe China Basin which was only accessible by car float. Finally we show some of the USA built locos that came to Britain.
