Has anyone seen it yet?

Issue 100 was a tad late, 101 was supposed to be on time - have you seen it?

-------------------




As its issue 100 its it going to be a particularly special edition, hence being so late?

Thanks.

I was just looking at issue 99 this afternoon to check on the proposed date of publication (allegedly 7th October).  We're still comfortably within the GWRJ publication error bars, so it may turn up within the next few weeks...

 

Actual publication of the Journal seems to inherit from the "Post Nationalisation Scene", rather than from the "GWR".  In other words, its invariably late.  :jester:

Any date is comfortably within the error bars - that's practically GWRJ's trademark now.

It wasn't in WHS Ealing when I checked a couple of hours ago. MRJ 251 did appear there, but only the week after Warley. Lo and behold, there was a big advert in it for....Warley!

given sky news' review of the next day's papers did not include a summary of GWJ100, I can only conclude it's yet to hit the stands...

Having just spoken to Titfield Thunderbolt (the shop not the train in case anyone is questioning my sanity) it is apparently due imminently.

 

So we'll wait and see

I wonder if Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot or Endgame could be rewritten around the wait for the next issue of GWRJ?  :jester:

This is the last time, I promise, that I repeat the "Waiting For Karau" line.
