thanks Jack. I have many of the PSL books from the 70s, which have contributions from welknown modellers here. Some references in older books might be out of date, especially when some products are no longer available, but are often better inspiration than new articles. There is also the chance that it might generate interest in an old model, which subsequently gets re-released. Faller have done that with some of the kits originally produced for Hornby, I think by Pola, and now done for Gaugemaster.

I would like to see the lifting bridges re-released, especially as I think one was used in the first edition of the magazines Chris produced back in the 80s.
The brickworks and colliery would also be welcome, especially as they were popular with the early modellers in r2r OO9.
Dapol have proved there is a market in model kits originally produced over 50 years ago, especially as some retooling has had to be done.

Got home today and saw the brown envelope, with array of stamps, and thought it must be the lost copy, but in fact it was the new special Chris has produced. Was not expecting it to be magazine sized, but it makes a nice follow on. Many of the layouts are familiar, and/or their builders. Bob's layout on first page, and including the various Wright Line layouts, an important part of the modern history of out hobby.
Chris's piece on dockyard layout. Pity I never sent him some of my 3D printed track, but spent of lot of time on development at the time, and several dead ends which wasted time.
I might have been critical of the lack of colour, but overall, there was a higher percentage of space for modelling and real railways, compared to the other current magazines which seem to have the same large articles about some new products(locos in particular), written by different people. In MTI a simple photo and a paragraph sufficed. I know it must be what people want, but is it good for the hobby to fill quite a large part of magazines with a few articles about new r2r products. I stress the r2r, as articles about new products, like mine, which are more to do with modelling are welcome, not just because it is my product.

When I recieved this issue I was struck by the lack of any kind of advertising or marketing. Tempting to say 'all killer no filler', but there was much of the familiar, but just enough newer material to make it a good read. Yes it would be nice to see a bit of colour too.
