About the Author

Chris Ford has been a modeller since childhood starting with simple plastic and balsa wood kits. By his teens he had become almost exclusively interested in railway modelling and by adulthood he had developed a particular interest in more 'quirky' railway prototypes, especially the narrow gauge lines. Chris has built many model railway layouts over the years both for private home use and for public exhibition display. Most of these layouts have featured in articles published in the model railway press and for two of them he received the Reiner Hendriksen Award for freelance modelling, which is presented each year at the Expo-Narrow Gauge model railway exhibition.
