I think all of us would agree that Dougs reports from the Nurnberg have been absolutely brilliant so informative and the photographs(so many of them) have added so much to his reports. I know we would all say this is a hobby we love and I am sure Doug enjoyed doing all that was doing but because of him we have all the up to date information well before any of the mags.

It has been said before I know "all this and he has to earn a living as well" but He has given time and energy and lots of resources for all of us so Doug Thanks so Very Much.

Nearly 1000 photos of trains and slot cars in 2 days...


Speaking German, French and English to hundreds of people...


And walking around with a heavy SLR, a computer on my back and 15 kg of catalogues...


I met Ben Jones of Model Rail Magazine. I introduced myself as Doug from Model Rail Forum and he seemed interested to see me, but maybe he was just surprised. We didn't have anything else to say so we went our separate ways. I expect he'll have also walked the show getting the next International supplement ready for their magazine.

Ben, if you need any of my photos in Hi-resolution, just drop me a line.

I whole heartedly agree - you've provided us with excellent coverage Doug, and open our eyes to the fantastic stuff available on the Continent. Thank you very much indeed

The work you've done Doug is phenominal! I don't think there is anywhere else one could be so informed about shows like this. We are all passionate about our hobby and as such news is craved but often scarce. Once again thanks mate!

I don't think Model Rail or any other printed magazine could give us any more than a tiny fraction of what's been covered here.

Well done Doug, fantastic work.

This is an area where this forum excels - news and pictures.

Noting the generous offer that Doug has made to the magazines to contact him in the event of their wishing to use any of Dougs photographs I wonder if we will see any of the images published here in any of the mags over the next month or two?

Doug has done an excellent job and has possibly produced one of the best online show reports ever!

Happy modelling

I agree fully - thanks Doug (especially as I gave up my annual Nurnberg trip to spend 2-weeks in Egypt !)
