If you're alluding to the mag that comes with the loco, then let's be honest - most of those on this forum will learn very little from it and wouldnt ordinarily fork out three quid for it. Ergo, it's a nine quid model with a disposable magazine :)

It is a very basic magazine I agree and has few pages to look at but a beginner would find it deeply interesting and they really are the perfect thing for a display cabinet. I find it sad seeing real models in cabinets where no one can appreciate their true detail or operation.

select establishments they aren't though and there is no north or south , there is good and bad in both locations , I live out of the bad areas but don't pretend the south is pure because that couldn't be further from the truth !!

actualy you couldn't be further from the truth !! I just walk around with eyes open and have had to work on the streets with all the above mentioned and have also been on both sides of the fence both being homeless and on the street and well off

when you can say you have done the same come back and gripe !!

As discussion has deteriorated into a slanging match I think it's time toclose it down.
