MODRATEC will be closed for two weeks from Monday 27th October. We will be
back in action on Tuesday 11th November.
I just wanted to share with you a delightful story that came out of the
recent model railway show at The Workshops Rail Museum in Ipswich. A lady
brought her young son (I would guess his age as about two years old)
specifically to see our demonstration layout. She explained that her son
loves signals. On a previous visit to the Museum, she had bought a copy of
our 2015 signalling calendar which her son insists be read to him from cover
to cover each night as a bedtime story. I allowed the young fellow to
operate some signals, although the concept of interlocking was a bit beyond
him at this stage! Nevertheless, I can see that a career in signal
engineering may well develop.
We have plenty of Calendars remaining, so don't forget to order your copies.
They make great Christmas gifts.
Stay passionate about railways and signalling.
All the best from "modadmin"
