  • PR to Make Exhibitions Pay

    Peter Booth

    Issue 60 (1993)


    Some corporate wheeler-dealers will tell you that 'public relations' is some kind of science, but it is really no more than the manipulation of any number of communications media to serve a specific end. Thus, it can be made to work for model railway exhibitions; indeed, as Peter Booth and his club colleagues discovered, it can mean the difference between success and failure. He says you should make the effort, work the systems and - like the best City PR men - monitor your results with a view to getting most-for-least next time.

  • Slow-Bounce Signal Mechanism

    Peter Booth

    Issue 46 (1991)

Capturing this characteristic behaviour in small-scale models is one of those 'over the top' ideas that has attracted the attention of scores of modellers down the decades. This is one of the neatest methods we've seen; indeed, when MRJ judged the 1989 7mm Narrow Gauge Association competition, we gave it a prize.
