Re: Are Model Shows Worth Visiting?

I think Model Railway shows are an important part of this hobby, nothing in this world is perfect so if shows don't come up to modellers expectations just get over it and stay at home, I don't understand why Railway modellers have turned into a pack of moaners, crikey we are lucky enough to partici...

Re: Hornby in the news today

No matter which way you look at it model railways are up the creek without a paddle, once the next couple of generations have moved onto the big railway in the sky that will be curtains for the hobby as we know it. I have 18 grandkids all in love with iPads, xBoxes, PlayStation's or sport, when they...
