In a bind
Putting magazines in binders is suprisingly satisfying. Turning flimsy, disposable publications into something approaching proper books is great fun. Mind you, it seems to involve reading lots of long forgotten articles so it takes ages.
Of course my recently(ish) complete run turned out to be less complete than it should have been. Issue 49 eluded me. I managed to get a replacement from Tony Pollastrone Railway Books in a couple of days. Cost was a fiver including postage, which isn’t bad. MRJ back numbers usually command a premium over the cover price.
So I will be back binding the issues. Of course I don’t have enough for all the mags. If you are sitting on any unused binder. Please do get in touch.
Now all I need is the oak panelled library to store them in…
