WEEK ENDING 
23 AUGUST 2018

BRISTOL PREVIEW

It’s time for the Bristol show, and we preview what promises to be another successful event. Plenty going on, plenty of super models, a good trade presence and, no doubt, good attendance as usual.


PADDLE STEAM ENGINE DRAWINGS

Julius de Waal turns attention to a classic Westbury design, the diagonal paddle engine, but larger, in metric and casting free.


R.L.E. ENGINE

Our first Model of the Week is an R.L.E. engine from the Alyn Foundry by Terence Seago  as seen at last year’s Bristol show.


WESTINGHOUSE ENGINE

Our second  Model of the Week was also shown by Terence Seago at Bristol. It is an Australian Westinghouse barn engine.


ENGINE CART BUILDS

Jason Ballamy completes a pair of carts for two of his hit and miss engines.


DUPLEX STEAM WINCH FOR THE M.R.

In Engineering magazine of 150 years ago, we found this report of a duplex winch for the Midland Railway used to help build St Pancras station. Perhaps it will inspire a new model design?


STATS

Looking at our latest website visitor statistics, things really are changing. Windows is still the most used operating system by readers, but it is no longer much ahead of the iOS of the iPhone and iPad, plus Mac computers. Most used browser is Safari, also from Apple.

We predicted this trend a few years back and devised a format which can easily be read on a small phone or tablet screen. Drawings and photos look great on an iPad and the text is clear as can be. All quite a contrast to those paper magazines that have been put on-line via page turning software which we find really frustrating to use. And no useful links.


ME PLANS SERVICE

The plans service which used  to be run by Model Engineer magazine is now back in

service with a new owner,  Sarik  Hobbies. Take a trip to https://www.sarikhobbies.com/model-engineer-builder/
