Sadly Iain Rice, who was a tutor in the early days of Missenden Railway Modelling weekends died on Saturday 8th October 2022.
Iain ran weekend courses from his Model Railway Study Centre in Devon. I went, and learnt more about locomotive kit construction in a weekend with Iain than I ever did from years of “advice” for members of my model railway club. His courses were very much hands on and the inspiration for the structure of the Missenden Abbey weekends. Iain was innovative and a brilliant (if at times controversial) writer for most of the model railway press and was the and was a key contributor to the Model Railway Journal.
