Modelling the Southern Vol2 published and features Fisherton Sarum

Following on from the publication in May 2012 of Modelling the Southern Volume 1: Ideas and Inspiration by Jeremy English, via Kevin Robertson’s,  Noodle Books stable  this week sees the publication of the long awaited Volume 2. Sub titled ‘The Electric Effect’ it features not only the impact of electrification on the Southern, and the fact that manufacturers are now releasing EMU models, but also other aspects of  modeling the Southern including other rolling stock and motive power and also visitors to the Southern from other railway companies and regions.

Available now from all good book shops…isn’t that what they say? If not try Noodle Books direct

In Volume 1 Fisherton Sarum made an appearance in the modelling inspiration pages, and does so again in this new volume but featuring some of those visitors to the Southern, mentioned above, in the shape of the 1948 locomotive exchanges and some of the models that I have created to represent the section of the trials that took place between Waterloo and Exeter, along with the freight trials between Eastleigh and South Wales and therefore passed through Salisbury. The eagle eyed readers will also, in an earlier chapter, spot a visitor to Fisherton Sarum in the shape of my Bulleid ‘Leader’

This 96 page paperback publication features chapters on Southern Electric, The Electric Effect, Electric Trains, Modern Traction for the Southern, The Somerset and Dorset, Strangers on the Southern and Inspired Modelling.  The full publication details are: Modelling the Southern Volume 2: The Electric Effect, ISBN: 978-1-909328-00-6

Fisherton Sarum features in new Southern Modelling book

Whilst Fisherton Sarum has now appeared in a number of the regular modelling magazines such as Hornby magazine, Railway Modeller and British Railway Modelling (full details can be found on the ‘In the Media’ page here) it has now made an appearance  in the latest book from the Kevin Robertson,  Noodle Books stable  “Modelling the Southern Volume 1: Ideas and Inspiration”

Available now from all good book shops…isn’t that what they say? If not try Noodle Books direct here

This 112 page paperback  publication by Jeremy English, a  finescale modeller and lifelong Southern enthusiast,  covers a range of aspects of modelling the Southern Railway / Southern Region from locomotives, rolling stock, stations, architecture, train formations, freight, operation and  infrastructure.

A couple of pages of images (with thanks to Chris Nevard)  and a brief introduction to Fisherton Sarum features in the Modelling Inspiration section, alongside a number of quality and well recognised Southern layouts. This hopefully demonstrates the scope and variety of possibilities when modelling the Southern.

Volume 2 is due out  early next year and is also promised to  feature further images of Fisherton Sarum.
