Wonder if all our hard(and more importantly fun) work over past few years is finally getting noticed by the more established parts of the hobby.
More articles in model railway press (current NGIRM has article about 'Skippy inspired model). Vulcan Iron Works was in an issue as well, and last issue had article about 1/35 scale layout/diorama in APA boxes(which can owe part of its birth to this group).
Then there are a number of various scaled minimum gauge layouts at York this year, following on from success at RAMMA last year.
Its just a pity membership(active) on this forum is down, a lesson in not assuming things just carry on and we still need to put the effort in to keep the best online model railway forum going.
