It looks like the Model Rail website is being re-built....some good stuff here....

 

Chris Leigh's Blog seems to have been re-started recently.

 

The Website has "The Model Rail Archive"....BUT some of the earlier links, such as Chris's Blog in the January 2017 section do not work The Chris Leigh Blog - 'Chassis Swap'

 

I received an email titled "How to fit a DCC decoder into your USA tank..."

 

On clicking the picture or the text link (Get Tips), I was taken to the new "Tip Cards Home".

 

https://www.model-ra...tips-cards-home

 

Lots of good stuff, but nothing about putting a DCC decoder in a USA Tank!

 

I do not actually have a USA Tank.....so not rally a problem for me at the moment.... ;)

Thanks for bringing this to our attention Sarahagain, we have recently changed the website and as a result the url for the blog got altered from new-blog to the-chris-leigh-blog and as a result its knocked out all of the urls for the individual posts, these should now all be working again.

 

In terms of the newsletter email you received, the USA tank article is in the ‘Know Your Stuff’ section of the magazine whereas the tips cards that you were redirected to are the ones that we trialed on the inside flap for a few issues in 2017. It is one of these things where I wrote the copy for the newsletter and it has been altered to fit in the neat little square box! For those who do want to know how to put a DCC decoder into their USA tank, Chris Leigh takes them through it on page 74 of Model Rail 248. (CG)

Hi Chris.

 

Thanks for the update.

 

 

I have bought my copy of Model Rail today....I went to Tescos, hoping that the bundle with Steam Railway that I bought last monyh would be available again....

 

Unfortunately not! :(

 

This issue was bought mainly for the Terrier (part 2) article.
