Great initiative - Why would anyone not give it a go?- it's free, it's about Model Railways and with Mr York at the helm!

Ah, but Mr York isn't the problem ;) Neither is the quality of the production. It's the content :P Given that the vast majority of RMweb readers (not just members) only have an interest in UK railways it's quite likely the content of this publication will reflect it. But except for some "obscure" NG in a wet, remote corner of North Wales, most of the UK scene holds no interest for me. I know, it's a personal thing, but that's why I'll give it a pass. However, those who are in the target group, by all means, have fun! :yes:

If you live in Staffs or Derbyshire Andy hand delivers it - and does your washing up at the same time. Which is why I've subscribed.

Problem is I subscribe to BRM through PocketMags. On my account page at PocketMags, there is no account number.

I think at one time I might have had an account at MROL but have not visited since RMWEB came along.

I guess I am ahead of your curve......

But don't get me started about PocketMags and no download capability of BRM for windows or mac. They think they are ahead of the curve but it will bite them.

There's now a link on the Pocketmags homepage to an offline reader.

Unfortunately still only available for IPad Android and Kindle platforms. Not Windows/MAC. I have not found any such link on the Pocketmags homepage to a real offline reader for this group of products. They do not extend it to all of their magazine products.

Andy,

I still have had no answer about whether having a pocketmags subscription to BRM qualifies.

I did finally find the download. Badly named setup exe file. Finally got install to run. Downloading my back issues now. Looks like it will take overnight.

All will be forgiven if this works. Silverlight reader version was like silverfish. Something for the exterminator.

Is there nothing you'll stop at to stop us modelling/housework/work/gardening? I'm all for this. It'll help the quiet night shifts/trips to Alderney pass so much easier.

Hmmmm, a featured debate eh? I bet my comments won't make it that far.

On a serious note, if I have just signed up to a lifetime supply of spam emails from Warners I will not be amused.

When is this likely to start Andy? Are you waiting for a target figure of applicants? I am now on the list and waiting for issue 1.

One point, my confirmation email says I have signed up for Model Railways Live, which I didn't think I had. Is this the norm?

I guess the online subscription through pocketmags does not count. I got an email back from Warners that they only know about paper subscriptions. I will have to sign up for the newsletter as though I had no related subscriptions. Previously I referenced MROL but that is an Austrailian site.

I have foreboddings about this and will provide you only with the e-mail account I use for facebook and junk mail.

As they said in Germany Bad Humbug.....

If you only ticked the RMweb.co.uk you should just get that newsletter. Let us know if it isn't so.

I'll do the first newsletter in a week or so.

I believe it did say about only having records for printed subs. It's entirely up to you which email address you provide but I don't understand about 'forebodings'; I've been very clear about what you get for signing up.

I'm all for it too. I was (and still am) registered on the Warners web site so it was just a button click. Looking forward to seeing what we get.

Well done Andy

It would be interesting to know how many new Blogs, Layout Topic threads, entries to the 2012 Challenges, etc. there have been since the last Newsletter.

These would help highlight areas of the forum that are active, but not necessarily visited by the individual newsletter reader.

Not yet Rich; I've drafted up the first one but there's a bit of a backlog at the office in preparing this to be sent out.

There's a comp in this month's one to win this if anyone wants a go.

I hate to intrude on Andy's ground but here's a slightly different sort of newsletter in the model railway world

http://www.rmcq.mixe.../semaphore.html

I've only looked at one and it is very prototype heavy but some modelling stuff at the back.
