  6. During various lockdowns I've missed getting a railway mag' from the shops, as we are getting home deliveries. Although I can get umpteen womens mag's, puzzle books and kids mag's, there are virtually no mens magazines, and no railway mag's available for home delivery. Railway modelling is one of the biggest pastimes, second to angling(Angling Times is available), so this does seem a missed oppotunity for the retailers Before posting today I checked again and was pleased to see Hornby Magazine available through Tesco(our home delivery) for the 1st time.

  12. I tend to stagger the joint by a few inches, it seems to put less strain on the joiners on reasonable radius curves. For tight radius Set-Track is better, as Chimer said above. Rob
