Having already established an international reputation for its coverage right across the international narrow gauge scene, with top quality photography and impressive use of colour, Narrow Gauge World has recently undergone a significant update.
The magazine now features much more extensive news coverage, along with feature material that looks beyond the headlines. While the popular broad-brush coverage of the narrow gauge, yesterday and today, remains, the magazine is becoming widely regarded as the standard-bearer for all those involved in, or simply fascinated by, today’s narrow gauge.
The free trial issue of Narrow Gauge World includes some eight pages of news from the UK and across the globe, together with focus features on a new locomotive for the Hayling Seaside Railway in Sussex and the latest developments in India. There is also a five-page News Gallery featuring top quality photography.
Among the features Editor Andrew Charman profiles Welshpool & Llanfair Hunslet loco no 85 as it goes out of service, we tell the short sad story of an unsuccessful bid to revive the Alfred County Railway in South Africa, and how fruit aided preservation in the American Rio Grade. We also print some recently unearthed colour pictures from the Welsh narrow gauge in early preservation days.
Modellers will no doubt find the 7mm scale drawing of Hunslet no 85 useful, while the modelling section includes a large scale indoor layout and tips on stock storage, coach conversion and point operation.
You will find all of the above and more in this free trial issue, an indication of the extensive coverage that is packed into every issue of the new-look Narrow Gauge World . For example in other recent issues we’ve shown how you can ride today’s narrow gauge in Bulgaria, Finland and Saxony, discovered what it is like to be a guard on the Ravenglass & Eskdale, profiled the enormous metre-gauge Pacifics of Jodhpur in India – the list goes on…
