Journal 1/20
« on: January 23, 2020, 08:15:35 PM »
Complaint to the Editor, would you please stop printing articles by Mr. Richard Bardsley on repainting parcels stock to BR Blue liveries, I was feeling very smug having finally got the LMS BG done about 3 months ago, now I've got another temptation. By the way the Generator Van looks tempting as well.Thanks Graham

It's goot to see that I'm not the only one to be tempted/inspired by Richard's articles! I've got several Lima Siphons and a bag of Etched Pixels detailing bits sat somewhere safe...

Funnily enough, I'm doing much the same thing turning an old whitemetal Siphon van into a BR-era newspapers van!

Another nice mix of articles, Neale - thank you! I particularly enjoyed the second part of the Minitrix saga, and the inspirational photos of Shirebrook. However, Chris Bowes article that started "The sort of stripboard that most people use..." by definition wasn't for me!!

Cheers,

Chris

Thanks Chris!

I think the thing with Bowes' article is it is one that will appeal to one subset of modellers, in the same way another article on building kits appeals to another. What I'm hoping is to ensure there's a real mix of articles -- it's that cliche of 'something for everyone' really.

The Minitrix pieces were an absolute pleasure to edit, and I'm glad others have enjoyed them as much as I hoped they would.

Cheers, NeMo

I'm relieved to know its not just me who suffers from Bardsleyitis because I don't think there's a cure. Graham

The NGS are having their annual AGM and mini exhibition in July. I have attended and exhibited at these events . This year they want dioramas and not working layouts so that everyone who turns up can attend the AGM . I personally have no interest in the AGM and will not be going to this event just to see static layouts.

That's not actually what they're saying. Asking for people to bring small layouts or displays that don't NEED to be finished and don't NEED to be operated. There's no reason someone couldn't bring along a small half-finished layout and just have a loco and some wagons trundling through.

Another cracking journal. I really look forward to these dropping on my doormat.

I will be attending the AGM and would be delighted to bring a project or 7 if asked !

That`s the way it read, this meeting is getting smaller and they only seem to be interested in the AGM.

To be fair, the AGM is the key part of the day as far as the Society is concerned. Anything else is just a nice to have.

I think it's mentioned in the Journal that no area groups are coming forward to host either the AGM or the AGM+small exhibition. If the volunteers aren't coming forward then why not try something smaller and easier to manage.

It's a while since I last went to an AGM (Grimsby I think) but back then a decent proportion of those exhibiting were unable to attend the AGM as the show carried on whilst the AGM happend.

An informal "Show and tell" style get together where members share ideas sounds like a good idea to me!

I understand, but layouts running sells the hobby. Kids ( local ) maybe put off just seeing static or unfinished layouts. In the past the AGM meetings have been well attended , the exhibition side. Thank goodness for TINGS and this site.

I think this type of sentiment is fairly common amongst the online community, and sounds like yet another dig at the NGS.
The NGS started back in 1967 well before the current tech revolution and over the years has made a huge contribution to N gauge. To dismiss it as some do on this forum is sad to see. One thing the NGS does well is bring together people and support local clubs.
Any physical event; Exhibition, AGM, open day, will bring people in to meet hobbyists and see what other people are doing, and that also brings new people into the hobby.
The web has made a massive difference to the hobby, but I see parallels with what happens on the high street when shops close due to the internet. People miss the shops!
