3MM Society Mixed Traffic January 2014.
In an edition packed with excellent photographs, the written content is very informative.
Peter Bossom kicks it all off with an essay on building a Southern Mobile Tank Transporter, a very distinctive wagon superbly modelled. Following this, personal experiences with DG couplings are related by Tony Briddon and Paul Hopkins describes the background of his latest layout and experiences when attending exhibitions.
Prototype buildings provide inspiration for modelling projects together with thoughts of part relief interpretations. This ably described and suggested by John Sutton , the editor.
A suggestion of building a bit of nonsense turns out to be a very thought provoking piece by Graham Shirley on an alternative chassis construction method. Jacques Gerber suggests ways of baseboard building using lightweight foam board and suggests suppliers of fitting for this increasingly popular material.
Eric Brutons classic photos depict an LMS Compound and a Hawksworth 15XX whilst Adrian Westbury takes on the challenge of constructing a Southern USA Tank. Still on a Southern theme, Steve Fackrell describes the saving and rebuilding of a layout which for many years languished in the booking hall of the Swanage Railway.
An informative Blastpipe and Whats New? conclude yet another issue, not forgetting several adverts which promise additional items for the 3MM Modeller.
