Welcome From Simon Kohler Dear Model Railway Express Readers, Welcome to this the first Model Railway Express eMagazine and I really do hope you will enjoy what the editorial team has put together. We at DRM ePublishing are more than aware that the model enthusiast has access to a huge amount of information associated with railway modelling via not only printed magazines but also from the Internet. Model Railway Express eMagazine is not aimed at competing with these sources of news and information but to complement them with input from not only key members of the editorial staff but also from you, our readers. Those of you who know us well will be pleased to hear that “Having your say” will soon be back as a fully moderated forum at www.mremag.com from the 1st of January 2017. The key difference from the previous MRE Mag is that you will now need to register an account to be able to post entries; just like any other forum you may have used. As this will now be a fully moderated forum please remember that there maybe a slight delay in posts appearing. The MRE Mag website will also feature breaking news, press releases, links to the exhibition database for the next 30 days, (courtesy of the UK Model Shops Directory – www.ukmodelshops.co.uk ), a link to the MRE Mag shop and, of course, the link to the latest issue of this eMagazine (and an archive of previous issues). In short both MREMag and Model Railway Express eMagazine will work together and hopefully provide a conduit for those who are passionate about this great hobby of ours. Please enjoy our first issue and do provide us with feedback for our next issue, which will be available in two months time. Model Railway Express is your free eMagazine so please contribute content and between us all we can make it a great source of not only information but also a place to be inspired.
