New Heywood books coming

Postby chris stockdale » Sat Mar 02, 2019 8:02 am

I’ve just spotted this bit of info from RCL Publishing on a narrow gauge modelling forum:


‘I'm currently working on a two volume set covering the work of Arthur Heywood and 15 inch gauge. The first volume The Duffield Bank and Dove Leys Railways is already started and we hope to publish late Summer. Volume two will be entirely devoted to Eaton Hall. The author, Heywood expert James Waterfield, has built full size replica Heywood locos and has a fine collection of Heywood memorabilia - plus access to family albums so there are images in this new work that have never appeared in print before. Plus, those images that we are familiar with are being re-processed from original prints, not copies - so will offer far more in the way of information than before. To add to this, pretty much every loco and item of rolling stock (even the Dove Leys 'pedal trolley') will be the subject of finely detailed drawings.’

Time to start saving...

Mike Decker, who did the drawings for the book, says the latest info he has is that it goes to the printers at the beginning of November.

Got an email yesterday to say my book is on its way.

A group member elsewhere had his about twenty minutes ago. Oh, the suspense...

Just ordered a copy.
Does seem that there are more people out there prepared to do scale drawings for narrow and minimum gauge locos and rolling stock. Not sure why but wish there was more for other gauges.

I just gave up waiting and cancelled my order with Book Depository as they still claim they can't get copies from their suppliers. Where should I try and order from?

I bought a copy of the book at Model Rail Scotland a few weeks ago and i'm very impressed. I hadn't seen the photo of the engine shed from the other side before and the quality of the photos and drawings is very high. Looking forward to book 2 now.

My only criticism would be the drawing scales used. While most of the locomotives and wagons are 1/24th, other drawings are 1/12, 1/16, 1/19.05, 1/32, 7mm/ft and are sometimes mixed within sections of the book - for example the bogie stock is all drawn to 1/32 (presumably to fit the whole drawing on one page) but the separate bogie drawings are 1/24. Sticking with one or two scales would have been better.

Still a highly recommended book.

I bought myself the book for Christmas. It’s outstanding. A hefty tome in every sense of the world. I’ve been a bit of a student of the works of Sir Arthur in my times and even I wasn’t prepared for the wealth of information in volume 1. It made me pull out my old Scratchbuilt Heywood and relive old times. Sadly the stock hasn’t stood the test of time.
A great book, and a must for Heywood students.
