Unfortunately the 4mm lobby led by Henry Greenly won the argument.Walkley’s response was to coin the term half 0 or H0 for 16.5mm gauge at a scale of 3.5mm/ft, and most of British railway modelling has been out of step with the rest of the world ever since.As a founding editor of Martha Stewart Weddings, and a celebrations expert, Darcy Miller has thrown parties for occasions ranging from a first birthday to a golden anniversary.Known for her ingenuity, creativity, and distinctive drawings, Darcy has helped plan dozens of high-profile events for celebrities including Drew Barrymore, Blake Lively, Martha Stewart, and Kate Spade—but her favorite fêtes are the ones she’s hosted for her husband and three daughters at home in New York City.In this issue he shares some of his knowledge about the development of minimum-space layouts in the United Kingdom. THE SURPRISINGLY LONG STORY OF THE BRITISH MICRO LAYOUT By David Thomas The name “Micro Layout” has only been in regular use in Britain since about 1990, but the concept goes right back to when railway modelling was starting to become a separate hobby from model engineering. Its purpose was to demonstrate that a practical working layout was possible using 00 gauge (16.5mm) track and a scale of 3.5mm/ft. Walkley also used the layout to demonstrate other ideas that we now take for granted — the use of permanent magnet motors to allow locomotives to be reversed simply by changing the track polarity, two rail pick up, automatic couplings, and not least the idea that a model railway should have room for scenery as well as track — a departure from model engineering where the focus is on the locomotives and the track is generally just something to run them on.* In the 1920s and 1930s 00 and 0 referred to the gauge not the scale, and an argument raged about whether it was better to use the correct scale of 3.5mm/ft for 00 or to adopt a larger scale of 4mm/ft to compensate for the small size of British rolling stock and make locomotive manufacturing easier.
Darcy Miller's whimsically elegant blend of art and text offers a framework to let the bride's unique style and personality shine through, as she prompts brides to press a blossom from their bouquet; commemorate the toasts; list the activities at the shower; send themselves a postcard from the honeymoon, and much more––to make a book of memories to be enjoyed for years to come.
