It thrills me to announce the launch of RAILWAY MANIA, a Podcast aimed at fans of Railways of all kinds. My aim is to provide enthusiasts with something entertaining and maybe even educational. Hopefully it's something you can pop on in the background whilst you are modelling, for example.
The focus is mainly going to be on the UK scene but will encompass the world when the subject demands it.
Railway Mania will cover everything from Model Railways to the Prototype, Mountain to Underground Railways and everything in between.
Episode 1 is around the 12 minute mark to give a light introduction, future episodes will likely grow in length. The main thing is that one should be able to pick it up and put it down at any time.
In between podcast releases I'd like to fill up the gaps with more videos.This one's actually a re-release but I hope if you haven't seen it before, you enjoy it! It's from back in 2014 at The Great Goodbye in Shildon.
I mixed a bit of classical music in with Joe Duddington's retelling of the steam speed record attempt.
Episode 3 of Railway Mania features an interview with Pat James, who came in to the hobby as an adult without having had a model railway as a child. The second half focuses on the challenge of coming out to your friends and family as a railway enthusiast, and why some people find it hard to do so.
Studio BRUNEL: Chocolate and Blue, I think... Just repainted Rapido's J70 into a familiar North Western Resident!

Luke22: Hello all!! I have a question: has anyone in the USA ever purchased anything from Amazon UK?
Jun 13, 2019 6:01:49 GMT
Sleeper Agent: Is it from Amazon or a seller on Amazon? Not sure about the former but if the latter you could contact them directly & see where you stand. With importing from the US I usually have to pay x amount extra in relation to the price and it can be hidden.

Sleeper Agent: That said if item x isn't too much to start with you should be fine, especially if the item isn't bulky.

Vought Sikorsky: I have, though only with books. It takes usually around 2-3 weeks, sometimes a month (Though the latter will probably only occur if you live on the West Coast). Shipping usually (For books) is $3.99 - $5.99. Hopefully this'll help!

engine87546: Beg pardon anyone I’m a slowly growing fan on the ERS but there’s a problem I’m having with the guide. Yes it gives info on the nwr but there’s nothing about how they became a private company and what did they do to expand in my opinion that should there;)

Nicholas: engine87546, although I'm not too heavily involved in the ERS side of things, I'd say that this is more because the ERS is an addition to the material Awdry created, including The Island of Sodor: Its People, History and Railways, which covers that area.
