RM Web Live this weekend
This weekend sees the first RM Web live exhibition. When we first looked at putting a show to tie in with the forum, it was important to do something markedly different to a traditional model railway show. After all, there are hundreds of these every year and the world probably doesn't need another one.
Since RM Web is all about information exchange, and we have the benefit of a professional exhibition organising team who can work "outside the box" rather easier than most model railway clubs can, the event has been planned around a series of skill zones.
There will still be layouts and traders but these will be supplemented by loads of demonstrators - people helping the visitor with their modelling.
Central to the event will be the theatre which has a rolling programme hosted by Radio 6 music's Steve Lamacq, who happens to be a railway modeller as well as music nerd and top broadcaster.
I'll be on the BRM stand with Edgeworth and a pile of the most recent projects I've built in the magazine so please drop in for a chat.
