Sadly the football pitch item has glaring errors - to an ex footy player it just looks wrong.  I am sure bent pipe goal posts will still exist on parks kick-about pitches but would not be allowed in any league. That ground has a stand so would be more than a kick about area. Unless my memory of my playing days is totally shot round bar posts with 90 degree mitred corners are now mandatory as are goal nets; that applying from the most junior league upwards. I recall watching Scottish football when Celtic were doing well in Europe (That dates me) and even then their square posts looked odd and dated.

I thought that there should definitely have been goal nets.

Considering the tiny stand this was clearly a non league ground and the "fans" were far too active. They should have mainly been middle aged curmudgeons holding cups of bovril. (I am the demographic!)

Wouldnt it better better modelled as empty, wuth a few grounds staff, unless you want to set the timeframe for your layout as 90mins on a saturday afternoon?

I finally picked up my copy today. Yes, I could have waited a few days for the next edition but Barmouth Junction is a stunning layout not to be missed.

However, I couldn't help but notice a few pesky typos, like putting 'go' when it should say 'got' and labelling 'Corwenna' as O Gauge. I'm guessing this was more likely to happen in transit, but I was rather surprised to find that somehow the Tail Lamp page had been ripped, and in a near dead straight line!

Anyway, moan over, it's a very good read. Phil's article on making the water will certainly come in handy.

Nets and the posts the right way round? Hardly realistic or prototypical.
