|Model Railway Journal No.. 240|
The latest Model Railway Journal, issue no. 240, has a very different appearance from normal but it seems very appropriate. Much of the magazine is has tribute to Bob Balrlow who edited MRJ for the first 14 years of its life. During this time MRJ set the bar very high indeed, but (and it's a huge but) if you read the back issues there was nothing elitist about it and it was very much a 'doing' publication, with plenty of articles about how modellers could achieve things.
The finescale, and hobby as a whole, owes Bob Barlow a huge debt.
