 In my experience of society journals, magazines, etc, I find some issues you can't put down, others you flick through quickly and soon put away. Everyone has there own particular likes and dislikes, that's the way it goes. But I still look forward to receiving them! It's a hobby at the end of the day!

In regards to the journal, an obvious solution would be to put a call out and get six people to in effect guest edit one journal a year with the NGS  journal editor  acting as a liaison officer overseeing all six

So is this you volunteering to be #1 then, Dan ?

I'm sure the NGS staff will welcome new blood to assist with all their efforts.

For what my two penn'orth is worth, I don't think the NGS journal is dumbing down. Skimming through the past year's issues there are articles on converting Union Mills locos to DCC, making printed circuit boards, scratch-building a brake van, modifying a Dapol M7 and building working semaphore signals. All very useful and instructive, but hardly beginners level. And the 2-page spread of Rugby Road in the latest issue - wow!! That's what I call inspirational, and definitely not dumbed down!

Long may it continue.

Yep no problem, I look forward to turning the journal into an MRJ for N Gauge...just need to dig out the tweed jacket and pipe. ;)
