Re: Scaleforum 2015

Danny I know that's not what happens. It's not my perception at all.

Re: Scaleforum 2015

I think we could usefully drop the toxic word "P4" if we want to attract more non-members. Ever since I can remember, Scaleforum has been seen by the general hobby, rightly or wrongly, as the place where you get your arm twisted into converting to P4. This doesn't happen at other scale so...

Re: Scaleforum 2015

And of course it wasn't really non-member that were the problem - the big drop was in members attending . It all depends on what you are considering. The number of people attending Scaleforum has always fluctuated from year to year, both in terms of members and non-members, but not evenly. The fall...

Re: Scaleforum 2015

Painswick Road Crossing

Scalefour News 188 featured an article by Tim Maddocks on 'The Buildings of Callow Lane' which included a picture of the Painswick Road Crossing on the ex-MR Tuffley Loop line in Gloucester. Although not a native of Gloucester I was aware of the line but was rather surprised at the name of the cross...

Re: Scaleforum 2014

I would like to add my thanks to Terry and his team for such an excellent weekend - I was enthralled right up to the final minutes, when I reluctantly dragged myself away from a fascinating discussion with Steve Duckworth on the art and science of chassis construction. Congratulations to all, espec...

There is also the issue of filling up our memory space with pictures, perhaps John could let us know if this is likely to be a problem I don't worry about that. We're not close to any limits today. Good, but we were at one point. I believe that at that time Rob had to upgrade the site. As a result ...
