An excellent couple of hours reading, given that I pretty much skipped over the "In Focus - West Coast Electrics" (10 pages) and the APT article (10 pages). Rapido/RevolutioN got excellent mentions and there are some excellent articles on the LNER non pacific locos such as the B1, B17, V2 and J39, another on train formations and a guide to coach type acronyms, and finally one about internet fora for railway modellers where the NGF gets a couple of columns and the comment in the mag of .....

"That brings us, at last, to what you've all no doubt been waiting for - our scale's very own talking shop, the N GAUGE FORUM (their caps).
This is, naturally, the one forum which can be recommended wholeheartedly to N Gauge Now readers..."


A most enjoyable issue.

Not only that, but the next issue (14) scheduled for publication end May promises "A close look at the N Gauge Forum" so I hope @Tank had his best bib and tucker on if he was interviewed!
I also look forward to the focus in that issue on the Class 40 Whistlers, the Stanier BLack 5 and the 8F.

Lovely to hear!   :beers:  Sadly I doubt I'll ever see it as my last two issues haven't arrived!!!  Great to see that we've been recommended though, and what praise! :thumbsup:

Praise is well deserved!!   :)
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

I have heard that from many sources, Pete. IMO businesses have to have good communications.
It takes a long time to build up a good reputation and 5 minutes to lose it.

Afraid I stopped subscribing some time ago.......errattic publlcation dates, poor communications and a content which was, to a large degree, re-iterating old knowledge.....I didn't see the point in continuing.

Those are good points - there are only so many articles that can be written about the history of N gauge.

As I mentioned elsewhere, I have had communication with Howard Foy.  He'll be sending me my missing issue and the N Gauge Forum will have a lovely advert in the magazine which I'm excited about.  :)

Howard is now a member on here, so hopefully when things calm down for him with the current issue he can talk to members on here for ideas and resolving any problems.

Still waiting for the Summer issue. Had no reply from Engee, so put in a PayPal claim to get my money back  :censored:

I had a phone call out of the blue from Howard, apologising for the delay. So he's trying, at least!

Must be hard to write, publish and distribute a magazine on your own - not trying to excuse tardy communication, of course.
Ted's Excellent Adventure - lots of imagery of my 'workbench', locos and what I'm modelling.

I am still waiting for issue 14. I sent an email to Howard, but it was only two days ago.

Managed to get a refund from PayPal. I do think waiting over two months with no replies to emails is unacceptable in this day and age.
