I winced slightly at the editors response to the well wishes in the letters in this issue. I get the animosity that's clearly arisen from the A4/A5 debate, but it seems a needlessly petty parting shot to point out how much more work he did than NeMo will be doing with associated cost implications. IMO content like that has no place in the Journal.

A real shame, as Grahame has brought so much to the Journal.

Agreed.

I have found the parting Editor a bit like Marmite.

I never liked the way, in his early years of tenure, that he would do his own review of a loco or product that was also being reviewed by the Trade Liaison officer. Its just rude and hints of superiority, especially as his reviews came first in the Journal.

Which reminds me, there is an article on N gauge locos in the 1960s which suggests that the SR only ever saw 03 shunters and class 33s. Of course that's wrong. And the editor was an SR expert, was he not?

I think we should just let the journal proceed naturally and encourage the new order.

My issue 3 arrived just 10 mins ago here in Oz, and of course after reading this, I went straight to the thank you part.

Yes, slightly cringeworthy perhaps, but I think that the statement that A4 format would be cheaper even with all the sub-contracting is a very valid point worth thinking about.

However, good to see our Roger's Wrenton and tree article in there!

Good on ya, Roger.  :thumbsup: :beers:
