There I was just browsing around and BANG your site appeared. Loved it - especially the Layout.
If anyone can assist in my search for software to run DCC (in English) either ZTC or Lenz systems based on own design layout ( albeit Trams ). Good luck and Best wishes to all involved in the endeavour.

Hi!,
Just to record my thanks to all associated with the Doncaster Festival.
An excellent and HAPPY show where we were well received - lots of interesting layouts - trade stands etc - where we were made to feel welcome.

The cafeteria was useful and reasonable in price abd selection.

The finishing touch was the Club and Organiser reps on the door as we left - Thanking us for attending and receptive to suggestions.

Found your web site in the Glasgow Evening Times. Have always wanted to start, but never got round to it. Any advice please, and maybe approx. cost of decsent sized layout, excluding locos & rolling stock obviously.

Yours,

great magazine, great exhiibition @ doncaster. Hows about raising a campaign to get the manufacturers to have a commonality in the following components
1. couplings - bachmann have three types
2. uncoupler rail, or supply uncoupler device which works on all brands.
3. common back-to-back for wheels

what do other modellers think?

Having been out in India for several months now, I must say how enjoyable it is to be able to regularly delve into the internet and enjoy the 'online pages' of the BRM web site! It brings a welcome relief from the rigours of Indian life!! I look forward to going home to my backlog of BRM magazines!! It is a bit like watching all those programmes you have recorded on the video whilst you were away, but better!!

Great Mag. Just received my first copy by subscription. I had to travel about 60 kilometers to pick it up at the store, none of the stores around here carried it.
I am interested in information with regards to the "Hundred of Manhood and Selsey Tramway' also known as the West Sussex Light Railway in its last years.

Good to see the Triang article, at least there appears to now be somewhere for this type of article, since the demise of Model Railway Collector.
Unfortunately I can see there being someone complaining about this type of inclusion, but then I say that if you don't like what is written, write your own article, and send it to one of the MANY magazines(paper or online) our hobby has. You can even publish it on the internet for all to read.

Have twice today tried to order a subscription through the webpage but kept on getting the error message "invalid transmission" telling me I must enter the shop from the beginning again. Would suggest you use a secure order system like that used by "Model Buses" which is easy to use and never posed any problems.

Subscription application has been printed off and sent snailmail - hope it still qualifies for the special website discount.

Apart from the above think that the magazine is great - please have more articles like "Regent Road" and "Cedar Park" as well as some tram and underground articles.

There's no doubt that BRM is a really great magazine and an asset to our hobby.

If you enjoy articles by BRM's contributors: David Larkin, Ian Fleming, Jeff Taylor, and Steve Flint, then you'll not want to miss meeting them in person, will you ?

Come along and see them at the BRM supported Demonstration & Clinic, "Wagons Roll" at the forthcoming East Midlands Model Railway Exhibtion, Victoria Leisure Centre, Nottingham over the weekend of 4 - 5March 2000. For more details, visit our web-site: www.nbmrs.freeserve.co.uk

Just surfed on in at lunchtime. I model New York Central in HO (circa 1953), but also have a "thing" for LNWR. 4-track main lines, track pans for water, and LOTS of heavy passenger trains! IMHO there ain't no other way to railroad! BTW, the main town and station on my a-building NYV layout is "New Carlisle".... P.S. Terrific web-site. Keep up the good work!

We bought this computer 3 years ago, and the railway modelling is now very slow. Have just gone on the Internet, so had to pay you a visit. I love BRM, have every issue carefully bound, so perhaps am now an armchair modeller. I will be back to this site many times for a good forage into what's happening. Thanks a lot, and best wishes to you and all readers and visitors.

A mag and web-site which concentrates on BRITISH railway modelling means I don't skip too many articles which I'm not interested in. However I agree with other forum visitors about more practical advice on wiring etc. It is a fault of the modelling press in general that we are all assumed to have these skills and be at the same level of competency.

Having been a modeller virtually since birth(Nearly 40 years)I've bought/borrowed or otherwise aquired most model railway mags,but I have to say that I think you have struck the right balance between the somewhat elite "finescale" end of the hobby and the more basic "straight out of the box" type of modelling.Having dabbled in most scale/gauge combinations I have no time for anyone who considers their approach the only true way!This hobby has room for anyone and the next person who has the gall to try and push their own hobbyhorse down my throat will find themselves at the wrong end of a yard length of track(peco or P4 its their choice)
Keep up the excellent standards you have set so far.

I'd like to see a hints and tips section too - particularly useful would be all those 'basics' that those of us who've been away from the hobby for a while forget about - like 'layout wiring' or 'cab control explained' - the kind of thing that can only be run in the mag once in a while, but lots of people need to know all of the time. I'd also be pleased to hear from anyone who can help me with info on the Highland Railway 1900-1920 - I'm just embarking on a garden 00 reincarnation and need all the help I can get!

An attractive and easy to use site. A welcome change from many I have seen. I have already added it to the "Favorites" and look forward to returning soon. One question : Is it possible to order electronic images from yourselves? The Russell Bridge layout from Dec '97 / Mar '98 has some wonderful shots which I'd like to reproduce for my own inspiration.

I thought I'd revisit your site. One idea you may wish to consider. How about an index to your magazine on the web site. It could be updated as each issue appears thereby visitors would be able to search for articles without waiting for an index to be published in the magazine or indeed having to search through several indexes. Once started it would be a simple task to update it and I'm sure would prove to be very popular. It may even tie in more people to the magazine as I'm not aware of anyone else doing this. What do others think? Also I'd be interested to hear your views on this. Keep up the good work.

Just got back to Bahrain to find this site in the latest BRM. Great idea. Lots more links to other railway sites please. I saw John Warner of N Gauge Lines at the Bradford show last weekend, he advises that he will be on-line as at end of May.
All the best.

Great page, well worth the effort and much appreciated.

Any idea when you'll include scenery ideas i.e. rivers (I'm rather stuck!!!!)

As a confirmed luddite, I am really surprised that I like the idea! I can see the potential for information exchange and for contact between readers/practioners of our hobby.
I look forward to reading more, all I will have to do is to learn more about the Internet and how to type!

Blackpool, Lancs. UK - Saturday, April 10, 1999 at 23:57:15 (BST)
One of the best websites I've seen and I like the magazine.
My one complaint is the publication of layout articles without a trackplan. This should be a total no-no. If the article is in two, or more, parts, each part should have a small copy of the plan. This months issue (May) has a follow-up article with no plan. I can't remeber what it looks like three years later and I don't want to hunt down the relevant issue.
You are by no means the worst offender in this respect, so take heart. No-body's perfect. Not even me.

Brilliant website! Yes, railway modellers do also own computers and have access to the internet. Keep up the good work. I miss my regular copies of BRM since moving over to the USA last year. I may renew the subscription soon, but a PAL video won't be any use to us over here. (a NTSC version?)

How about links out to other Railway (modeller) sites

Well done on an excellent site. I can only echo the previous comments on other magazines denying (or seeming to) the existence of the Net. I think its a great idea to have the sales etc on the site along with the letters etc.
Just like your magazine this is something you should be proud of.
Please don't change anything about the magazine, its easy to read, informative and has possibly the best review section of any

Greeeaaaat Site. However, remember we don't all live in the U.K. and your videos will be no use in N.America as our TV system is NTSC NOT PAL. Perhaps you could come up with something else for your N.American readers.
If you did I "might" be tempted to send you a subscription.
Love the layout, let's hope it grows and grows.
All the best RM
