  1. Thanks for the offer, of the mag and membership, but no thanks. Surely it's up to the members if they want a meet somewhere up North, not an ex member, many moons ago there was talk of trying to do a meet somewhere in the Carlisle area, so the Northern England and Mid Scotland member could get together, but nothing came of it. Will keep my eye's open to see if it ever happens, but i won't be holding my breath.
  2. I'm a lapse member, mainly to do with my location, West Cumbria, my division was based in Crewe a 350 mile round trip, though there is a group in the North east 220 mile round trip, hence i never got to any meets. Always thought it was a Southern based organisation, i didn't really benefit from being a member, was ask a few time to become a member again (mainly at exhibition) but when i asked the question about the North /South divide, got the same answer, not the NRMA fault just the way it is, i feel sorry for any of the Scottish groups, wanting to go to the convention, it will be 600 mile round trip, if not more. I'll still fly the flag for American modelling and keep my fingers crossed there's a meet/convention a bit further North so i could attend or even display my layouts.
  3. Never had any problems contacting Sophie, by phone or Facebook messenger

  8. The layouts first exhibition, is this weekend at Barrow in Furness, come along and say hellooo!
  9. Couldn't agree more, the pop up video and adds are very distracting (to me), which is why i've stopped updating/ using RMweb as much, we could always pay to be a gold member, but that's of no benefit to me, being a HO American modeller, lots of forums are going the same way. i'll just pop in now and then, to check if i've any messages
