Got my copy Saturday...a very good read.


As a side note I'd like to thank give a big thanks to AMRM for their excellent back issue service. I'm very impressed with the service.

I really enjoyed the feature on Glenburn, and like the blog about it thoroughly enjoy reading and seeing anything about this layout that is quite different from the norm in a lot of ways. It also shows that you can create a highly detailed, realistic AND interesting layout in a relatively small space, countering the often heard "if only I had more space".

On a side note and not a complaint juts an observation, considering the wait and I would imagine the popularity (not that they have anything to do with it I guess) was the review on the Ausicision (sic) 422 just a bit briefer that what most would have imagined?

Also a big congrats to all who are currently and previously involved in producing Fifty Years and Three Hundred issues of AMRM. I started buying AMRM in late 1983 from memory as a twelve year old, and have every issue going back to about 1977 (and still trying to collect the older ones!). What a wonderful reference library they can be, and I'd hate to think how many hours I may have spent over the past thirty years reading them all from cover to cover, most of them multiple times.

If I had to single out one item of note in all of those issues, it would be the original multi-part series on the great Vulcan Vale Narrow Gauge Railway that ran in the February 1985 through to the February 1986 issues. That was without a doubt the most emotive, detailed, insightful, not to mention well written story on a layout I have ever read. If you have never read it, do yourself a favour and get a copy of those issues you will not be disappointed.

I've just back into the hobby after a bit of time out. I'm really enjoying the scratchbuilding projects in the older issues. We are really spoilt for RTR models now.

Mine arrived in Jakarta yesterday 27th May.  The distribution people do good work.  Give them a pat on the back James, or is that you who does it single handed?

Best regards,

More likely the newsagent will not sell them because they sit on the shelf there. Newsagents used to have to take X number of all magazines back when I worked at Gordon And Gotch . But now they can pick and choose what they want and if it sells in very small numbers then they will not get them in. It is fair enough, you have two options either subscribe and have it posted out or ask your newsagent to get one in for you. Personally the subscription would probably be the easiest.


All newsagents will not get the same magazines in, you might find that two newsagents a kilometre apart get vastly different magazines in, because they both know what will sell and they don't worry about the ones that don't. Sorry state of affairs but such is life these days.

whilst thats entirely possible its not the instance in this case as both agencies have a good range of railway mags and in both instances they are now not on the 'able to get list "
