Good morning all,

 

The BRM December Digital Edition goes live later today and it really is a cracking issue. Just read the content list below...

 

The annual National Festival of Railway Modelling in Peterborough (October) gave us the perfect opportunity to speak to both readers and non-readers about what they like (and don't) about the magazine and to hear suggestions for future improvements. It was great to hear so many positive comments and to get non-readers to see just how far the magazine has progressed over the past few years. I really think that this issue is a great example of why BRM has grown so much in recent months.

 

The print edition goes on-sale on Thursday, November 9th. Be sure to get down to your local magazine outlet. Below is a short preview video for this month's DVD.

 

And one final comment, check out our Next Month pages (136-137) as we have something very, very special planned for BRM January. We'll be posting some teaser videos in the coming weeks, but this really needs to be seen to appreciate just how incredible it is. Everyone we've shown it to has been amazed. I've never been so excited about a 'promotion' in all my years in magazine publishing. See the Next Month pages to found out what this 'promotion' actually is.

 

Steve

Honestly, it blew me away when I first saw the images. We'll be previewing it at Warley and selling that issue at the show. We have some teaser videos coming soon also.

One question, how do digital subscribers view the special issue?

 

Digital subscribers can fill-in an online form and we'll post the glasses out FOC.

 

Or, they can send us a stamped addressed envelope. 

 

It looks great on screen!

The lead layout (which also appears on the cover and DVD) is The Worlds End. This viaduct creates an impressive centrepiece. Have you seen it at a show? What impressed you the most?

As yet I haven't seen it, but I'll be seeing it at Doncaster next February. Even with just that photo it does look a very impressive layout. :)

If I may be permitted a comment -

 

Yes I have, several times.  What impressed me most was the way that the land and townscape slopes down from left to right through the station, a feature not modelled as often as it might be.  Now if Pete Goss could find a way of animating his battle re-enactors ...

Interesting my post from the 13th and others have been deleted regarding how this magazine has been progressing . ?? I have also replied to the PM request from the editor  regarding my comments on the same day, which has been read by him  and no reply received either. 

 

Not fussed either way personally.

Your dismissive comment was in another topic - http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/128020-brm-december-2017-dvd-and-only-99p/?p=2923405&do=findComment&comment=2923405

 

The only thing which I deleted was my initial response to your comment (I also note that you were trying to be an irritant on Facebook too yesterday during the server outage).

 

I am sure Steve (who is the publisher rather than the editor) will reply in due course but he has been away from his desk a bit this week.

Thank you , everyone is entitled to their opinion. My Facebook comment was a harmless joke, there is no need to be insulting.  I look forward to the reply in due course.

Hi, 

 

I do appreciate you taking the time to PM me as it's important to find out what people like and dislike about the magazine. Not everyone is the same and I truly respect everyone's views. My dream is that every modeller loves and buys BRM. That's a dream though and simply can't happen. I still dream though...

 

Apologies for not replying but I didn't think there was a need to?

 

Steve

Still no sign of mine, who/how can I get in touch with someone about it?
