Articles index & books


Listed below are the two main categories of my published stuff. The articles pages are being updated.

Just the one so far although further ones are in hand. This section includes fresh information and corrections.

This is an index and précis of articles I've written over the years, covering historical, modelling and cross-over subjects. For example, many later articles in the modelling magazines were entirely historical, or 50:50 historical & modelling.

It isn't possible to provide copies of the articles for copyright reasons but I can recommend the Vintage Carriages Trust shop (see Useful Links) as a good source for back issues. Unless otherwise stated, the modelling articles are in 4mm scale. Where kit makers have a website, a link may be found in the Useful Links.

The book took 12 years for me and Clive to complete and, though I say so myself, Ian Allan have made a beautiful job of it (see full description and sample pages). Vol.2 about the Secondary Services should follow in a year or so's time.
