REM39: Modelling from the 1960s to now
FREE with RAIL EXPRESS magazine No. 134:
• News: Dapol considers producing its planned ‘N’ gauge FEA in 4mm scale as well. Cambrian Models releases unfitted bogie steel carriers: the BDO and BPO, there are three more ’37/4s’ for ViTrains, new D&E era layout DVDs from MSIM and DC Kits produces a Wickham Trolley.
• Reviews: Bachmann’s refurbished Class 37 Mk. 2 is reviewed in the form of DCC decoder fitted ’37/5′ No. 37672. We also look at Parksides new HTV hopper, Hornby ‘Pendolino’ intermediate coaches and Graham Farish’s revamped HST in ‘N’.
• Features: Backdating Heljan’s ‘Crompton’ to correctly represent a 1960’s green example is a tricky job, but REM guides you through the process with two locomotives built for cross-London freight services on the ‘P4’ Saffron Street layout.
• Others: Barrowmore MRG are finally out of space in Mostyn’s hidden sidings, which nearly caused trouble at Railex.
