Sorry guys I didn't mean to start up a discussion about live steam. I was only making a joke (I thought) about it. I've become more interested in wagons and coaches lately and found the article more enjoyable to read than I was expecting. Also in the photographs I thought the garden and railway looked particularly nice as well.

Thanks Keith
I certainly took it as a joke. A problem with email and forum posts is there's always the risk of misinterpretation. A face to face quip has the added bonus of body language to contextualise any utterance. I suppose that's why I sometimes append a Smiley - to reassure folks that my comment is intended to be light-hearted :lol: They can act as the contextualising body language.

I well remember a colleague taking serious offence at a tongue in cheek comment I made in an email which I circulated to the world at large in those days when I used to work for a living - it was when smileys were just coming in as apparently random collections of punctuation marks. ;-}

Well just got this months Garden Rail Magazine and this is another one of ge-riks articles and I have to say I haven't been disappointed. Well done Rik on another excellent article on "How to be a Scratch-Bodger". You are an inspiration to us all. You show us with just a little imagination how to achieve some many nice models.

Thanks again Rik. Hope you can and will contribute more to GRM....... :thumbright: :thumbright:

Your postal service must be a lot more efficient than mine. I was wondering when the next edition was due. The electronic version isn't up yet, either.

Aha! It arrived this afternoon. I'd forgotten what a lengthy aricle it was. I hope it's not too boring. I do hope I won't upset too many of the live steam community with my sacriligious after thoughts. :?

I think you chaps are quite fortunate receiving the mag this early, I realise that you must be subscribers and should enjoy the early privileges but my gripe is that I have a digital subscription and for some months now this has not been available until the planned publication date. In fact last month I didn't receive notification until after the publication date. Rant over!

Interesting. The first article in the mag is by David Mercer about his very fine Springfield Railway. He has an impressive array of scratchbuilt locos from around the world, including some magnificent beasts from the Lough Swilly. Although he started with live steam, the majority of his locos are now battery electric steam outline, which he prefers to live steam. That's quite reassuring - I thought I was ploughing a lonely furrow in the UK.

It's not that good Rik... :lol: :lol: No it's ok really, at least it comes in the morning and not late afternoon like it was at our old address, even though we are about half a mile away..... :scratch: :scratch:

Got an email this morning at 01.36 showing the electronic version...........

A great magazine this month, so much relevant and interesting content. I would suggest that I now look forward to Garden Rail more keenly than SMT!

I agree, my SMT doesn't arrive sometimes and GR has far more content in my view.
