Hi Chriss.

Good to hear the Gazette DVDs have arrived & are good.

My start in U.S N-scale as a kid, was based on very little actual info.

20 years latter, my fav. train-store in London (now closed) got the Gazette in for me for a few years.
This was during what some would say was the 'golden-era' of the magazine.
I was hooked on U.S N.G for LIFE !

Now of course we are all totaly spoilt with the MASSIVE resource of the W.W.W.
Freerails ROCKS !
& I haven't bought a magazine in 10 years.

:moose:

Si.

I was greatly entertained by both Jenson & Kimis championship years !
I am still a big Kimi fan & was not surprised to hear he got the 'fans vote' of fav. driver by some margin; although a very media-shy, unglamorous character !
I liked watching the races at Indy.

Got a great shot of the moon the other night...
...Lumix u4/3rds with Tamron 200mm f2.8 + TWO 2x teleconverters.
Not bad for an amateur !

I had a tiny Graham Hill driving my F1 slot car in the '60s, and Jimmy Clark was a hero of mine. I haven't watched much F1 since he was killed.

Golly gee, I sold all my old Gazettes years ago. Got a very nice chunk of change for them and promptly spent it all on train stuff, groceries, and utilities. Now I wish I had more to sell!

Woodie

Woodie,

I did the same, back about 2000, sold all my issues from the 70's & 80's, for decent money.

With the archive DVDs available now, I doubt one would get as high a price, per issue, now.

I just bought my copy, arrived 3 days after ordering (even though my order, on Bob's website still shows "Awaiting Shipping" :)

NOTE!! After installing the initial executable program, I opted to load all issues onto my hard drive. Got disk 1 done, but upon inserting disk 2, was told it was wrong disk. I checked the contents of disk 1 and disk 2, they were identical. My disk 2 was mislabeled. A email to Bob brought s response the next day, stating a replacement disk 2 was on it's way. Should be in mail box when we get home tomorrow.

In the meantime, I connected my Android tablet to my comp, and copied the earliest 12 issues to it, to take along to daughters for the Christmas visit.

So, all in all, except for mislabeled disk, ti=totally painless transaction and setup. Well worth the price.
