Ya Know after all the years of this magaizine its still nice to see it show up at the door.
Its nice to have a place you can direct folks to.
This isn't a kiss up because I contribute.
Its the fact that even with rock throwers and all the critics we still have a mag we can call ours.
I to have been disoppointed at times untill I get my focus right and additude ajusted.
Some only worry about getting their "moneys worth".

Do you ever get "your" moneys worth on anything??
Not having the mag is hard to imagine.

So I say thanks to all those who TRY and stick their necks out on the line to keep the magazine going..

Get on with making the Hobby grow.

I stopped my subscription to Garden Railways because the publisher thinks he can send me something I don't want and expects me to mail it back. So I buy it at the LHS, no address involved, and besides that gives me a "reason" to drop in.

Mark Lewis seems to think that the word 'Model' in the magazines title. No, it's about railways in the garden; whimsical or scale is not mentioned.

I graduated from Lionel back in 1948, tried O scale - room was only 8 feet by 40, long enough but not wide enough - so moved to HO. The rivet counters were well in control back then, but with constant moving, a loop or whatever had to suffice.

Enter G gauge and things got better; as the old saying goes, ANYTHING GOES. And going around in circles has one advantage, you can't get lost.

The other post has plenty of negativity; let's leave it there.
