NGS Journal 3/20
« on: May 21, 2020, 02:35:25 PM »
I got my editorial copies this morning.

Not sure how many NGS members are in this issue, but there's a quick stroll around 'Wrenton' on page 86 that I hope people will enjoy -- we've got some more 'Wrenton' for later in the year. Other highlights include:
  • Step-by-step converting Peco wagons into pre-grouping equivalents
  • Western Region goodness at 'Par Road'
  • Where and when to use ready-to-run bus and coach models
  • A Middlesex branchline out of cardboard
  • Simple electronic projects for getting stable DC voltages from your controller's 16.5 V AC socket
...among others.

Hopefully people will enjoy this issue. In the next issue we'll have the first batch of Lockdown Showcase pieces, so if you've sent me stuff for that, expect to see your project in issues 4/20 or 5/20.

As always: stay safe everyone, and if you do have some spare time on your hands, please do think about writing something for the Journal!

Cheers, NeMo

Thanks NeMo

I for one am really looking forward to receiving it.

Sorry to be a numpty but please can you remind me how we submit lockdown showcase models, I know you have told us, but my currently feeble furloughed brain is struggling to remember!

thank you

Roy

Hello @Roy L S,

Here you go!

Cheers, NeMo

----

I'd like to invite NGS members to participate in what we'll call the Lockdown Showcase -- unless anyone can come up with anything better!

The rules:

  • Something you've started, finished, or otherwise worked on during the Lockdown
  • Might be modelmaking, electronics, woodworking, or any other crafting aspect of the hobby
  • Submissions via WeTransfer.com or emailed directly to me (journaleditor@ngaugesociety.com) as you prefer, but WeTransfer preferred if sending more than 1-2 MB of photos
  • Include one or more sharp, bright photos of the project 'as it comes' from the camera -- no editing, cropping, etc.
  • Please also provide a few lines on the project and include your full name and NGS number
  • Obviously: N gauge and members of the NGS only
  • The first batch will be in the next Journal (4/20) sent out to members at the end of July

Any questions, please get in touch!

journaleditor@ngaugesociety.com

Hope this will be fun. I've already had a few submissions, but the more the merrier!

EDIT: Deadline for issue 4/20 is June 15th, but the feature will continue for as long as people want to keep submitting material.

Regards, NeMo
NGS Journal Editor

I emailed my lockdown showcase entry @NeMo but didn't get a reply saying whether or not you'd received it. Is that normal? :)

Nope. Try again. I usually reply within a few hours of receipt. If still nothing, PM me your real name and/or email address.

Mine arrived yesterday. Only managed a quick thumb-through so far but it looks like there are some interesting articles, even if nothing of direct importance to me at present. Will look forward to a more leisurely read later.

Cheers,

Chris

Mine arrived yesterday and is a wizard read!
Really enjoyed the article on the motive power for James Street as I suffer similar issues regarding availability.

Thanks for the feedback on the James Street article Mick. It makes it worthwhile writing when you know someone’s enjoyed it, which sadly is all too infrequent....

Dave (and Martyn of course!)
