REM68: Taking D&E modelling to the next level!
Inside RAIL EXPRESS magazine No. 163.
In the December issue:
• News: Heljan announces another unsuccessful diesel class from the 1960s, the English Electric/Napier ‘Baby Deltic’ (Class 23) and shows off painted body samples of its forthcoming BTH Type 1 (Class 15)., there is a preview of our next limited edition – 37670 St Blazey T&RS Depot in DBS red – Dapol’s ‘Silver Bullet’ and Bachmann’s tasty looking JPA and MBA wagons
• Reviews: Dapol’s ‘N’ gauge Class 153 diesel multiple unit is our main review this issue, while we also take a look at the same company’s new ‘OO’ gauge Thrall Europa/EWS MBA and MCA ‘Megaboxes’. There is also a look at the latest set of ViTrains releases, which includes a limited edition pair of West Coast Railways locos, as well as a Virgin Class 47/8 and DRS ‘compass’ Class 37/5.
• Modelling: It has been an epic struggle, but the two BREL Type 5s started way back in REM64 are now completed… almost! No. 56075 West Yorkshire Enterprise and Loadhaul reliability modification test bed loco No. 56102 have consumed hours of spare time and inspired a range of new detail parts in Shawplan’s Extreme Etchings range. Gareth Bayer tells the third and final part of the story.
• Serial: Keeping with the wagon theme of previous instalments, the Mostyn group look at British Railways diagram books, and provide the fruits of their research online for everyone to see! Go visit www.barrowmoremrg.org.uk and see for yourself!
