One month, and one day after commencing to 'build' this 'new' layout, an article on the completed layout appeared in the NZ Model Railway Journal. The editor, upon seeing the layout on show at Rail-Ex, popped the usual 'When's the article for the Journal going to be ready?' as does every time I go anywhere near a model railway. 'Tonight', I said, to a disbelieving scribe. I got an e-mail next day from him thanking me for the dissertation.
The NZ Model Railway Journal, by the way, is not just some club type magazine, rather, a glossy, fully published, and professionally distributed, magazine.
