 :) This came today.  An issue that will be well worn by the time I finish reading.
Bob Ferguson's article immediately caught my attention.  I like the detail and the concept of doing "Mini Modules."
WM3798 has another great column!
Thanks Walt!!!

Phillip H., my apologies! I did not intentionally omit mention of your article. I just have not got to it in my first read through.

No worries. With many folks here having user names that don't match their real names, it's sometimes hard to tell. I agree with you regarding those mini modules - that's a right brilliant idea.

Congrats fellows..... the magazine are, after all, what "we" the modeling public submit to them so if  :ashat: are making the pages then the hobby is being well served..... just beware.... you may have some "modeller groupie" approach you at a train show, clutching their copy of your cover or article and wistfully ask you to autograph it... (Yep; it happened to me this weekend.... a surreal expereince to say the least.....)

We can all say "we knew you when............."

Congrats gents, well done !

Puddy's so shy...  He's in this issue too.  Can you spot him?

Hint:  Everyone knows he just eats up passenger trains...

Apparently that's the first thing they did to him after getting him to sign up for benefits:

Sorry, but I have never understood the use of "handles", nick names, and such.  Would you go in to your LHS with a bag over your head?  ;)
I have always used my real name.

Well for me, Peteski is a nickname, given to my by my co-worker in the early 80s and it just stuck. I use that nickname in real life and online.  It works for me. Peter Wisniewski is just to cumbersome to use everywhere.  :)  I was surprised to see my entire email published in the Letters section. It took up almost half the page.

When I started online years ago my handle was an extension of my email (which is kcsphil). By the time I got here I had largely abandoned that practice.

Damn Phil, I feel like a dummy.  Read your article the other day and didn't realize you wrote it.  Good job.
