BRM October 2017

Recommended Posts

Normally our digital edition comes out on Fridays but this month is a little different as it will be available around 1pm on Monday as it includes details of a significant announcement from Hatton's.

4 Great Model Railways

1. Neely (N) - It's Ely in Cambridgeshire, but not quite as you might know it. Hence the name...

You may have seen it on RMweb, Terrysoham shows us Neely in detail.

 

2. Little Muddle (OO) - A casual comment from the modeller's wife inspired the curious title of this picturesque layout.

An RMweb favourite, KNP gives us the full story with a 17 minute video on the digital issue.

 

3. Power for Life (OO) - Life lessons and corporate communications combine in this compact scene.

RMweb's Ramrig takes us around a layout for work - digital edition includes 18 minute video.

 

4. Brixham Bay (N) - A crashed German aircraft provides a clue to the precise date of this coastal wartime scene.

That looks interesting and an issue that I'll probably purchase. But when are print copies scheduled to be in shops and newsagents?

The October digital issue doesn't seem to be available yet on Pocketmags - just tried to follow the link from BRM's email and came up with page not found (and search brought up the Sept issue).

 

Cheers, Mike

It should be live any time now. There is occasionally a delay in us setting it live to it being visible on Pocketmags.

Thanks Steve - it is visible now.  Should it be £3.99 or £4.99? On the purchase page it shows as 3.99 but when in the basket it comes up as 4.99 (could be VAT)?

It should be £4.99. This is the price that I can see on both the purchase page and when added to my basket.

I've been looking through the Digital issue but can't find the video referred to for Little Muddle. Can someone guide me to where it is please.

Thanks Steve. I had perfect vision before I took up modelling. Now it's clearly a case of "Shoulda gone to Specsavers"

Hi,

 

This is bizarre as I've experienced that problem once, yet my colleagues have got the correct magazine. I've rechecked and it seems OK. Can you check again please?

I honestly don't know, as I experienced the same problem at 9am yet at 9.30am it was fine. My colleagues also checked and it was fine for them. Maybe there's a glitch that affects a small number? I'm in contact with MagCloner though.

Mine neither. Last month it arrived the day after the shops had their copies for sale.

If it's an concilation, neither has mine. Subs copies were delayed by a day so they didn't arrive before the Hattons announcement, it would be just our luck for them to be early just when they couldn't be allowed to be!

Fascinating indeed on how trons seem to work and not work without any reasonable explanation at all.  When I was in the Navy we used to call it PFM (Pure blank Magic).  I believe the earlier generation called it "gremlins."   Perhaps the Chinese or North Koreans are cyber attacking BRM?  The important thing is that it worked out in the long run.  I have to say I'm impressed by the speed at which Steve responds to posted problems (not just on this thread, but many others).  Mistakes and errors can happen to anyone - it's how one responds to them that should be measured.  Good on you Steve!

My Subscription Mag has not arrived yet ?

 

Apologies, but subs copies were due to be dispatched on Friday which meant most would have arrived with subscribers on Monday morning. Due to the Hatton's announcement having a strict embargo we had to delay posting. If you haven't had your copy, I hope it will be with you today.

Well at least I know why my hasn't turned up but not very impressed it hasn't arrived today defeats the point of subscribing.

"Totally"? Apart from the introductory gift, delivery to your doorstep and lower price per issue?

 

Seriously though, this was difficult. The other option was to ignore the Hattons news for a month, which people would also have complained about. Not sure we could win this time.
