As Model Railroader reaches its 1000th issue, their site has been showing short videos of editorial staff present & past talking about their favourite issues in a very relaxed style. Some are amusing, but the genuine enthusiasm for the hobby is what shines through.
How little we see of our own model railway editors and staff writers-or are the PR gurus worried that might damage the magazines image? What we have seen is usually stilted and truly British- “I’d rather be elsewhere” attitude. Come on; send them on a course or two about media presentation and you might have some new stars in the making.
Of course MR has been having its staff writers & editors appearing regularly on MR Video for a few years and many of them have advanced their credibility no end. More of it on the this side of the Atlantic wouldn’t go amiss!
