There are two ways you can get your club involved with the MRL Forums!
1. You can send the club's details to an administrator to be advertised such as where the club is based, when you meet up and what your website (if you have one) is.
2. If you want to go the extra mile, you can set up your club's own sub-forum! This will not only allow you to advertise, but also mean you and your members can have a forum of your own to use for your needs.
What ever you want, all you need to do is send an Administrator a PM to get your Club or Society added here, and outline what you would like from us.
Looking good, Jack.
As the new paved area looks quite wide - which I'm aware might just be a trick of the lense - perhaps a market traders stall or something similar might make a good addition? Or do you already have plans?
A valid point, Bob. I just find that, despite being a member of the computer generation, I prefer to see things in print, rather than a screen. I enjoy flicking through a magazine for the first time and seeing new things, maybe seeing a photo from an angle previously unseen etc.
I cannot remember the last time I bought a real or model railway magazine. There's ample material on the interwebby, and it's a lot more interactive than a magazine's letters page. The three or four quid cover price for a printed magazine goes a long way towards picking up some bargains from the broken bits boxes under the tables at exhibitions and toy fairs.
In fact three quid, and a little bit of work, would buy six of these!
Well, it's been over 2 months since I last posted, and I can conclude that absolutely NOTHING has happened... until now.
Decided to enjoy the hot weather, open the windows and get on with some modelling. Well, it'd be rude not to?
A new textured sheet has been made up for the pedestrianised area outside the old platform where the buildings will go such as the shops and pubs. That's been glued down and methinks it looks 'swish'. New lamps have been fitted, although not electrically connected yet, and it's all starting to look rather good! I'm still yet to sort out the windows for the buildings, hence why the pub is held together by an elastic band.
Recently I decided to end my subscription with Model Rail. I’ve been a reasonably long-term subscriber but had found that recent editions – with the odd exception – had left me quite cold with lots of articles that were of no interest.
I left it for a while, trying out Railway Modeller via an app but didn’t enjoy reading on a phone or tablet so ended that. Then it hit me. Where best to get inspired? The real thing of course.
I’d bought the odd edition of Heritage Railway in the past and always enjoyed it, so when a 3 for £5 welcome offer was spotted I went for it.
Wonder if it will help me finalise some plans!
