Model Railway Express Magazine

Those who are readers of MRE Mag, will have noticed a little announcement in yesterdays edition.

Pat Hammond is retiring as editor of this long-established on-line publication and his replacement is - Me.

Hopefully I will be able to continue Pat's good work whilst gradually evolving it with my own particular skills. Don't expect any big changes, just a few tweaks, after all, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. With over 15 years webmaster experience on my CV, I'll be approaching this as a web job rather than a specific model railway one and with a bit of luck this will stop me from descending into toy train hell with no interest outside the hobby. That's not healthy either for me or anyone I'm working with !

Obviously this isn't a full-time job so you'll still see me writing for Hornby Magazine as well as other publications and even keep updating this blog.

My tenure as editor will begin on 1st September. In the meantime, please set www.mremag.com as a bookmark in your browser and prepare to visit on a regular basis.

Congrats Phil! I hope it's not too much of a rod for your own back though!
