Well, despite the contents of my box being counted twice it would appear that I have one too many...

Let me know where to send it to and I'll get it in the post.

However, the last order to be collected should have been for 10 binders but there was only 7 binders left in the box!
Please can those of you who picked up your binders check that you took the correct number and let me know if you have more than you should?
If the missing binders are found I can put people in contact with the members who's order is short
Many thanks
Steve

None extra here, just the six as requested.
Thanks for sorting all this out.

Thanks, once again to Alastair.

I've spent the last few hours putting all my copies of MRJ in to the binders so rather than a huge pile of magazines, I now have this, all 254 issues safe for the future. The units, which I already had, that they are in are from IKEA and are, completely coincidentally, a perfect size for 7 binders...

The photo also betrays my other modelling passion which takes me away from railways now and again...

Hi John,

Looking very neat indeed! However, I am loth to part with 36 MRJ to level matter up!!

Good news that you have one of my errant binders -I was so engrossed at S4N that I totally forgot to go and collect mine (I was deep in technicals at 5.05pm with Neville from the USA, as we started to pack up, and it was only John Chambers nabbing me in the car park that reminded me.....).

My PM facility here is still stuffed - we get a new system and Windows 10 on Saturday next, which may cause a further email hiccup. But Steve Carter will be able to give you my contact details.

Note to self - must get up to IKEA.....

Thanks for discovering that stray folder; two to go now....

Cheers,

Steve

Hi John,

Many thanks but please don't rush over it; it will be a while before I get around to my own binding! After a solid slog to get projects completed before S4North handovers, my brain is much, and we now have computer upgrade/holiday/house search to tackle in parallel........

Incidentally, your own projects are very inspirational for me. After 41 years I am again the owner of, if not a layout, but at least the baseboards for a proto-Clandown colliery branch of the SDJR. Although I am getting the hang of locos, I am reduced to total novice at baseboard level upwards....

Keep up the good work,

Cheers,

Steve

Thanks for that Steve.

I don't want to derail the thread too much but having built only two layouts so far, baseboards are still somewhat of a learning curve for me as well.

My first layout (which you will have seen on the SLW stand at the weekend) used a core of foam insulation whereas the new layout uses 6mm MDF all round. Whilst the new layout is still manageable, the boards are are on the cusp of being too heavy for one person to manage with the result that I'll probably not be taking the layout to any shows so, for next one, I'd seriously consider going back to a foam core...

Thanks John,

That's great - sorry that you needed to reveal yours on forum, am emailing you mine now. We know our system is relatively ancient and security potentially porous, hence my reluctance to advertise ours on the broader ether! And the mystery failure of our PM send facility latterly has been the last straw - I advised John McA. not to spend further time on it.

New computer system/Windows 10 arriving Saturday - fingers crossed......

Cheers,

Steve

I had checked I only have my correct 26.
Sorry, I forgot to announce it though.

The extra binder I had has been reunited with it's rightful owner.

BUMP!!

Over a month on from Scalefour North and the issue of two missing MRJ binders from my order remains live.

We should by now be clear of anyone having missed the calls (this thread, email) to check their own consignments, if they were away over Easter.

I will be going away shortly for an early summer break so would very much like to see this resolved, as I am now nearly through with filing my MRJ issues in the binders that I did collect from the show, and would like to complete the remainder.

It has already been demonstrated that one member innocently collected a surplus binder, now returned to me, many thanks - so I would ask anyone who has not got around to filing their Journals to please double check that they have the number of binders that they paid for?

Many thanks,

Steve
