Great Model Railroads 2019

Post by david_heath899 » Fri Nov 16, 2018 3:56 pm

Is it really twelve months since I posted the message about 'Great Model Railroads 2018'?!!! Well, the 2019 issue is now available from UK stockists (I just picked up mine in WHSmith). According to the blurb:

"This issue offers loads of inspiration with layouts depicting:

Gritty railroading in the concrete jungle on the Los Angeles Junction.
Busy freight and passenger operations at Canadian Pacific’s Montreal Terminal.
Midwest action on the Burlington Northern in the 1980s.
Heavy coal-hauling in West Virginia on Norfolk Southern in N scale.
And much more!"

Age is just a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, then it doesn't matter.

“This year,” says the Editor, “it seems the theme is compact layouts…We didn’t plan it that way, I swear.” Well, I’ve now studied GMR 2019 in depth and have to admit that I didn’t think it was that brilliant – certainly not as good as last year’s. I liked the two narrow gauge layouts – ‘From Rico to Lizard Head’ (HOn3 Rio Grande Southern) and ‘Lights, Camera, Logging’ (On30 Gold Creek Timber Co.) – but not an awful lot else! That said, GMR 2019 is still an enjoyable and (reasonably) inexpensive read.

I haven't been lucky enough to find a copy at my local store so far, but I'm reliably informed that our own fellow BR member Brian Moore's Quisling CA , SP inspired modules have made it in the issue, which I think is worth an honourable mention :-)
