AMRM at the Liverpool Exhibition

The Australian Model Railway Magazine will be present at the AMRA (NSW) exhibition at Whitlam Leisure Centre, Memorial Avenue, Liverpool over the October long weekend (29/30 September, 1 October).

Our regular SCRMA/AMRM stand will be there, in more-or-less the same place we were last year (stand No.62, over in the far corner of the main hall, next to Casula Hobbies) and we will, as usual, have available the current issue of AMRM, plus some recent back issues and the full range of books published by our sister organisation, Eveleigh Press.

You will also be able to subscribe to the magazine, purchase our 2013 calendar and Eveleigh's recently released books, plus select from the Eveleigh back catalogue, including some reduced price specials.

You can also join the Southern Cross Model Railway Association on the spot.

We accept cash, cheque and Credit Cards for all purchases.

See the posts below for our recently released books.

Our Exhibition specials this year will be:
O.B Boulton's Engine Portraits $45.00

Clydes Among The Cane $25.00


Diesel Profiles Alco DL541 $30.00
 Green Diesels $30.00

South Maitland Railways $30.00
And a 'super special' (if it was any cheaper we'd be paying you to take it away... ;)
 Essays in Steam $9.00

There aren't many of these left, so get in early!

I will be at the exhibition all three days, but not necessarily on the stand.
I will, however, definitely be on the stand around lunchtime on all three days.
Come and say hullo, particularly if you have an idea for AMRM!

Back Issues: October 2012 AMRM

The October 2012 issue of AMRM is now available as a back issue.

The contents of the October  issue

As is traditional for the October issue the layout article features John Dennis's excellent photography, returning this year to the narrow gauge theme with Peter Knife's HOn3.5 home layout, Minnipa, based on the prototype location on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula.

Continuing Ian Black's definitive work describing the construction of the NSWGR and VR's Southern Aurora in HO scale is the chapter in the story, describing the construction of the RMS dining cars.

The next part to be published will describe the BCS lounge cars.
Craig Veitch returns with part three of his series describing the construction of his layout.

Continuing the 'construction' theme is an article by new author, Christopher Jewell, describing the conversion of a proprietary kit into a model not available commercially.

This issue's three page Gallery features some fine modelling by author and EMU expert, Roy Howarth, describing some of the models he has constructed, set in a period somewhat neglected by modellers.
All this, plus Beyond the Fence and over eighteen pages of reviews and new product news, including the latest from manufacturers great and small in three scales.
