Chris Gardner's Model Railway Magazine Index

(page down for contents list)

This index contains all references to the Southern Railway, its pre-grouping constituents, the nationalised "Southern Region" and the post-nationalisation companies (SWT, Connex South Central, etc), which I have found in my collection model railway magazines. This collection consists of:-

Railway Modeller (RM) 1957-current issue
British Railway Modelling (BRM) - complete
Modelling Railways Illustrated (MORILL) - complete
Model Railway Journal (MRJ) - from issue 45 to current issue (some gaps)
Rail Model Digest (RMD) - all issues
Model Railway(s) Constructor (MRC) - 1958 - 1972 (some gaps) patchy from there on
Odd issues of Modeller's Back Track (MBT) and a couple of Model Railway Constructor Annuals (MRC Annual)

As well as Southern references, I have been including other articles of more general interest, such as the excellent articles on tools and techniques which appear in MRJ or used to appear in MORILL in the past, and British Railways standard locomotives and rolling stock. Sadly, I have not been consistent, and so these entries are by no means complete. However, I hope you will find them useful. I've included the occasional intruder from other regions, like the panniers that worked at Weymouth the Warships which worked the West of England Line. I hope you will forgive these transgressions. One day I will work through the collection again, but not for a while yet - I have a layout to build!
