NG&I Review 132 is now at the printers for distribution at the end of this month.


This issue is an American special. We lead with a detailed study into the history of Yellow Aster Gold Mine with its unusual 18ins and 30ins railways with mixed gauge track and slewing switches. The Maine two-footers are well covered by a new drawing of the SR&RL Baldwin No.24 and an On2 layout of a proposed and part-built extension to the SR&RL. We have drawings of the ALCO War Dept 2-6-2t in as-built form and as varied in subsequent lives on two French systems. We complete the story of the British Colombian On3 mine layout as featured in REVIEWs 129-131. We also present a new HO dock switching layout project based on the Santa Fe China Basin which was only accessible by car float. Finally we show some of the USA built locos that came to Britain.
