Can anyone here help me?
I have just completed my first model engineering project, Tubal Cain's beam engine 'Mary' and I am planning my next project. I want to build a 5 in gauge loco and it looks as if the Simplex is a good starting point for a beginner.
I have the drawings but, as it will be my first locomotive, I could really do with the instructions that were published in ME and in book form. Unfortunately the book is now out of print and Amazon have not been able to come up with a second hand copy for me.
I have the last four ME articles in the series but not the first eleven (these were published between 21 April 1967 and 5 July 1968
As I now live in the South of France I can't borrow the back issues from my local library to copy them.
Question: Does anyone have an unwanted copy of the book (however well thumbed and oil stained) they could sell me? Alternatively does anyone have copies of the magazines and could copy the articles (expenses refunded of course)?
