Good morning (afternoon) from the USA.
I model HO scale US prototype but want to "get it all right".

Hence articles on building yet another british loco from scratch are not of interest BUT those on scenery, operations, ... definitely are.
I realise you can only publish what you get submitted but anything you can do to broaden the scope of topics will be appreciated as long as they retain the british sense of humour.

Regards Peter
p.s. my favourite article is still newsletter 161 - the story continues - rule 119

Yes I am restricted to what is submitted.

However, I think that all branches of model making hobbies have something to contribute (not exclusively railways as well). An article on American scenery approaches would be very welcome. I read Model Railroader when I can get my hands on it, some of the Kalmbach publications are well worth reading.

So this is a call for all persons to put your thinking caps on, and write something.

When I was studying history, I had it drummed into me the basis of writing an essay.

If you are having difficulty in starting to write an article, the easiest way to start is not with the introduction, but to write the middle part first. Then write the introduction and conclusion last. The words will flow onto the page!

Just checked magazine 161 - the writer is known to the current editor.

I should know this but how should we submit a first draft of an article to you ?
