I’m struggling with the iPad version. I can’t get it to display the extra photos of TINGS. I’m using the BRM iPad app. Can you only see these extra pictures if you download via the pocketmags website?

Hello,

I've checked and now added this to the digital edition. Apologies it wasn't included. Re-downloading should solve as it's now working on the office Ipad.

Hi Westerner,

The magazine contents will be published here nearer the time of the on-sale date of print copies which is this Thursday - won't be long...

Hello Howard,
You have an article by Phil entitled ‘Variations on a Theme’ which highlights a Metcalfe small cottage kit, which the article says is available from the Warner’s website (world-ofr-railways.co.uk). But I cannot find a way of accessing the order site for it. Would be grateful for your assistance

Many thanks

Rod

Having a read through now as mine has just arrived, very enjoyable.  Just watched the DVD and I particularly liked the section on Little Bytham.  I really enjoy the features that focus on a large layout showing an operating sequence so if we could see more of that then that would be fantastic.

Hello,

Really pleased to hear it. You'll be pleased to hear that a second installment on the layout has been shot, this time in 1958 running era to be featured alongside the layout in its completed form in BRM... it'll appear soon!

Hi Rod, we're awaiting confirmation in the office, but it's likely to be live on the website within a week at most. Please check back in a couple of days. Sorry we haven't managed to get it live sooner.

"Inside the smokebox door" on the Atlantic isn't much of an advance on what Triang did with the M7 all those years ago....  :jester:

I'm still waiting to find out what is in the paper version (even though it would appear that the subscription copies are out), to see if it's worth making a 12 mile round d trip to buy one.

There's already rumbles of disquiet on FB about the lack of free card kit for subscribers.

 

I'm wondering how I download it as a digital subscriber ,oh hang on ...... ;)

Is there a DVD with the paper issue? The price looks to remain high enough for it.

The message is a bit mixed in Steve's post isn't as in one place it refers to 'every reader' but it then refers to 'newsstand copies' coming with the free kit.   Seems maybe we subscribers area cut above 'every' and perhaps beyond simple kit building in our skills or interests but instead we also get a different cover and the DVD for our money so it looks like newsstand visitors aren't getting the DVD.

 

So lots of mixed marketing here and i'm sure that makes sense as various ideas are tried out by the BRM team but I do wonder on this particular occasion about the cost of running two different covers?
