Nicks workshop mutterings

Various railway orientated modelling projects in my new workshop/railway room.

Iain Rice

It is with great sadness that I heard that Iain has passed a way after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease.

He was, among many other things, President of my local model railway club-The Launceston and District MRC. He was instrumental in the development of our previous layout, Lakebank, and also recently was the inspiration about our new layout based on the North Devon Clay company line from Marland to Great Torrington.

His encyclopaedic knowledge of all things railway was phenomenal as was his musings in all the various books and articles he has written.

I am sure there will be plenty written about him and I leave it to more eminent modellers.

A new blog following the development of the North Devon Clay layout can be found at
