The creation of "The Engine Shed" blog is a very promising step for Hornby in terms of communication to customers.
As such I applaud the effort and the first issue has some great content in terms of pre-production images.
I think the decision to publish every two weeks is curious. Unless the purpose is simply to be a repository for pre-production snapshots, (which is really nice to have and a positive step for Hornby) it could easily take too much time from the development team and distract them from the job of designing models.
If any material written content is to be provided, then that will take (some) time away from development work.
If however it is simply an outlet for pre-production images, then the bi-weekly publication schedule should be manageable.
Mr. Kohler's biweekly blog is excellent. He however is in the position of not having a full time model development job and, one presumes, has more time to devote to written content.
I would like to see the blog talk about where models are in the development process, much like Bachmann does.
