HAPPY BIRTHDAY MODEL RAIL!
It seems surreal to be wishing Model Rail a happy 20th birthday – it only seems like yesterday that I was eagerly waiting for my subscriber copy of Rail Enthusiast magazine (which contained Model Rail as an embryonic supplement) to drop through the letterbox, before I had to head off to school. I remember it for its more relaxed style, and I think that is what Model Rail has done more than anything over its 20 years – made our wonderful hobby accessible to a wider audience in an entertaining, yet informative way. I wish Richard, Chris and all our friends who work so hard on the magazine all the very best, and I’m looking forward to the next 20 years. Ian Fowler, Managing Director, Gaugemaster
