Jan
19

L&BR Trust Member David Cameron has some thoughts regarding fundraising:


Two questions: 1.) Do you have access to the internet? and 2.) Do you ever shop on line?

If the answers to the above are both ‘No’, then please feel free to stop reading at this point and move on to the next article. If however your answers are ‘Yes’, then a third question should be asked:- ‘How would you like to raise funds for the L&B Trust – but at NO COST TO YOU?’

Heljan Manning Wardle's imminent

Jan
22

Well, it's been a long time coming - it was way back in the March 2013 edition of Railway Modeller that Danish manufacturer Heljan announced that they would be undertaking what was probably intended to be the first mass produced 009 model of a British locomotive.
