Wheel Specifications for the Modeller, Mike Sharman
Mike Sharman’s beautifully engineered locomotives and rolling stock, performing impeccably on trackworks of intriguing complexity, have inspired modellers for decades. Similarly his books have taught them valuable practical techniques. The ‘Wheels’ book filled a particular gap, in that Mike had painstakingly researched and compiled an extensive range of fundamental basic information in a handy and relevant form. It saved a lot of people a lot of work, and it has been too long out of print. Mike is a past-President of the Scalefour Society, so it is fitting that a member of this Society worked to digitalise the material, so that a new edition can now be offered. It has benefited from examination by specialists of the various railway Line Societies, and minor amendments incorporated. Whilst the shape of the book is slightly changed, the familiar tables and text are essentially unaltered and remain a tribute to Mike, a tribute which the Scalefour Society is delighted to have facilitated.
Members may purchase at a £2 discount, exclusively in the Members Stores.

A Modeller's Guide to Civil Engineering Structures, John A Smith
Written by a retired civil engineer, this e-book addresses the basics of the structures that are encountered on British railways and through diagrams and photographs illustrates the design considerations and construction of cuttings and embankments, bridges, viaducts and tunnels, as well as other associated items. Bonus files are included that feature both prototype and model photographs by the well-known modellers Richard Chown and Mark Tatlow. Together, this gives an invaluable work of reference that will enable readers to understand and build more authentic models of the environment around the trains and track.
As a first for the Society, it has been produced as an e-book on a CD that is compatible with both Windows and Apple systems. It is simple to use and allows access to a wide range of exceptionally useful information for the modeller working in any scale, gauge or period.

We are pleased to offer a comprehensive guide to the development, production, installation and use of the Alex Jackson coupling.
This book is packed with photos and diagrams, offering a readable and straightforward account of dealing with manufacture, fitting, and operating the AJ coupling in an easy reading style. As well as describing the history of the AJ coupling, the book is very practically based, taking the modeller through the steps of forming the coupling hook, mounting it on various types of vehicle, and operating it.
Written to help with aspects that have previously been regarded as part of the black arts of railway modelling - a frequently asked questions chapter gives useful troubleshooting advice, and a separate section shows the use of the jigs now available for forming and mounting couplings.
