Model Railway Articles

Over the years I have written a number of articles about model railways. Many of these are aimed at beginners to the hobby but there are some that are more advanced.

Most of these articles have appeared in the Australian Model Railway Association's 'Journal'. A number have also been published by British Railway Modellers of North America (BRNMA) who have a reciprocal membership deal with AMRA which allows them to reprint articles which have appeared in each other's magazines. I have indicated below those articles that I am aware have been reprinted by BRMNA. Note that articles are still subject to copyright, this is a special arrangement between the particular clubs.

The following are the articles that I wrote which appeared in AMRA Journal (including the issue in which they appeared):

My article for beginners on Baseboard Construction was written in 1992 but I never got around to sending it in to Journal so it appears here for the first time. My new article on Researching Your Chosen Prototype also appears here for the first time.

Answers to Questions

Sometimes those things that an experienced modeller takes for granted are a complete mystery to those just starting out in the hobby. Sometimes even an experienced modeller comes across something they don't understand. I have received a number of questions from modellers and the following have kindly granted me permission to share their question (along with my answer) to assist others who also require an answer to the same question.
