  1. Thanks for this Chris. It might have just swayed me to make a cheeky purchase come pay day. Sounds like there are some great articles in there this month

  2. Great insight into Miniatur Wunderland Chris. It makes you wonder if it could ever happen here in the UK. London, for example, is often considered a desert for railway modelling. Thoughts Chris?
