Continental Modeller - Latest Issue

Post by david_heath899 » Sun Aug 18, 2019 10:33 am

I’ve decided it’s probably best to have a ‘Continental Modeller – Latest Issue’ thread (which can be updated ongoing) rather than create a new thread for each new issue.

Anyway, the September 2019 issue is now available and contains a couple of features that may be of interest to NMRABR members:

CLEARWATER HARBOR

Steve Waterfield describes his American On30 layout, which features a working quayside ore tippler, as having evolved rather than being designed.

MOHAWK LOOPS II

Peter Brackenbury describes his new American N layout, which evolved from the original to give the opportunity of running even longer trains at exhibitions. The layout is based on an imaginary BNSF/UP joint line in the Front Range of the Rockies.

The October 2019 issue is now available and contains a couple of features that may be of interest to NMRABR members:

HILLS COUNTRY

Patrick Grace relates how his large Colorado-inspired N gauge layout, which was originally designed with exhibiting in mind, has been developed over quite a long time.

PONTS MILL, VERMONT

Andrew Knights introduces his latest exhibition layout, a small American N gauge switching scene, once again set in his favourite part of the country.

The November 2019 issue is now available and contains three features that may be of interest to NMRABR members:

COYOTE CANYON

Inspired by the ‘High Line’ above the Animas River, Bob Wright continues his quest to capture the atmosphere of the Colorado narrow gauge in On30.

NORTHEAST CORRIDOR

Electrified operations along the eastern seaboard: Elmar Haug & Thomas Tschur have modelled in HO a comparatively unusual aspect of American railroads.

MY FINAL LAYOUT

Brian Lovett reflects on what will be the last layout he builds, an American HO scene which hosts his working models of a large dockside crane and a rotary wagon tippler.

VERY little for the American enthusiast in the December 2019 issue. In fact, just one (short) article:

DENVER & RIO GRANDE WESTERN ROTARY OM

A serious piece of snow-clearing kit: Bill Longley-Cook prepares for winter by adapting a commercial product into a closer representation of the prototype (On30).
