Model Rail: Issue 222 (June 2016)

In This Month's Issue:

This month's issue of Model Rail is all about making space work. You'll find plenty of inspiring features and 'how to...' projects as well as our regular news, reviews, layouts and Workbench articles.

Inspiration: Chris Leigh offers a selection of minimum space passenger trains from the length and breadth of the UK. With ideas as to how you can model them.

Workbench: George Dent builds a wagon retarder and transforms a Dapol coach. Mike Harris plans how he's going to force perspective on his 'Ardennes' layout. And Peter Marriott makes his first scratchbuilt building and demonstrates how to fix a backscene.

Layouts: We look at the story of BR Blue era station 'Tinsley South' ('OO') and GWR branch line terminus 'Penfold Priory' ('O').

News: All of the hobby's hottest news stories from Bachmann's ER Thompson coaches to a limited run of Dapol Class 66s, commissioned by Gaugemaster.

Reviews: Chris Leigh has finally got his hands on Locomotion Model's limited edition APT-E, but is it worth the wait?
