GWR Modelling website

Sign in to follow this  





Just a brief note to say that the long-running "GWR Modelling" website has been passed on to a new webmaster. This is none other than Russ Elliott, who is well-known here om RMweb (although under a different name) and in the modelling world more generally. I can't think of a better man to take over the site, and I'm sure I'm not alone in thanking him for doing so and for keeping the website going. Also a big word of thanks to those who helped facilitate the changeover in practical terms.


The transition is already complete and there is even a new update by Jim Champ on his "Beginner's Guide to Pannier Tanks". As usual, it's all at gwr.org.uk

Yes, it is indeed good news. Russ should also be applauded for taking on a site were the navigation structure and coding is a bit clunky, compared to some of the flashy stuff that's possible these days. But he is clearly more skilled at these things than I am, so he knows what he is doing (which I didn't always :D).


It's amazing how things have developed since I originally began the site. As I was saying to Russ, image download times was still a major issue back in 1999. I had a strict rule that no images should be larger than 16.000 KB :). These days here on RMweb, file sizes of 150.000 - 200.000 KB aren't unusual (although I still think it makes sense to keep file sizes to a reasonable level).
