I've never seen that one. Thanks!

The guys who built those 1:32 scale Shays and chain drives are Robert Stephens and Roger Russell. Stephens dropped out of the hobby around 1995, sort of disappeared around 1997 and, as I just discovered from a Google search, died in 2013.

Roger is in poor health but, between then and now, built three or four layouts in scales ranging from 1:64 (Sn3) to 1:32 (1n3). He also detailed or rebuilt some S and O scale locomotives and, if I recall correctly, a few years ago scratchbuilt a 1:32 scale Shay. I have no photos of the Shay. I published whatever photos Roger sent of his other models and layouts. I'll send him an e-mail and hope he's in good enough shape to reply.

Am I right in thinking that Roger Russell lives in Floridia ? If so I believe I paid him a visit back in 2004 with Brian Nolan and had an hour or two viewing his layout and models . I did take pictures but am darned if I know where they are .

Kim, was that loco in either of the 1:32n2 layout articles you sent me? If not, you built one similar. As great as the layouts were, your bashed critters were every bit as impressive. I loved those articles. -- Russ

Hi Guys

yes, The Model Works Australia is very much still in business and continues to supple a range of 1:35 or 1:32 scale collector models as well as custom building brass models in 48th, 7mm, 1:35 & 1:32 scales.

have fun & stay cool
