I've been making good progress with the next issue (4/16) - the articles are all in place and final details
for them are being worked on, plus I'm only waiting on the more time sensitive contributions like the trade
report, reviews and NGS news. The copy deadline is the 28th of this month and at the start of the following
month I need to get it completed and generate the print ready file to send to the printers. The posting out
of printed copies is scheduled for the last full week of July. 
 

 
However, I'm in need of contributions for future issues. Full details of how to submit something as well as
ideas and suggestions will be in the 4/16 Newsletter - please read it through and give some consideration
as to how you can help.
 
Thanks in anticipation.

Presumably members have now received issue 5/16. I hope that they enjoyed all three publications included with this send-out.

Work is now progressing on issue 6/16 which will be the last of 2016. The articles and features are now in place and I'm currently working on the 'What's New in N' section and the Newsletter with the Society updates. 

Cheers.

Journal 6/16 is now old news and hopefully even overseas members will have received their copy by now (if not presumably the big white bird is still on it's way). I hope everyone enjoyed the main mag and the special anniversary supplement. It was certainly a lot of effort and fun to put it together. 
 
Progress is well underway for issue 1/17, the first of the 50th anniversary year, and the bulk of the main editorial (articles and features) are in place. However, I'm currently working on the 'news' section, so, with Warley being very scarce on N gauge news, if anyone has any knowledge of new products, announcements or interesting information about N gauge, then please let me know.
 
Thanks in anticipation.
