EDITORIAL

This is the final edition of LMS Journal. Before writing my final editorial l looked through some of the early editions and concluded the decision to move on is a progressive step. LMS Journal never sought to be a model magazine, but it has become clear that the majority of our readers are modellers and we need to cater for them more directly. Many answers to problems l encountered when building my own model of Dewsbury were answered in our sister magazine Midland Record so I have a practical interest in the dissemination of material. We have been planning a new project, LMS Portfolio ó Modelling and Prototype Inspirations which will be an occasional publication, to be launched soon.


ln this issue readers will find the second and final part of David Huntís article looking at the companyís marine interests, two entertaining articles by Keith Miles and a study of the S&DJR by Neil Burgess. Graham Warburton, whose articles have examined most aspects of signalling, writes about railway telegraphs, a good example of information that could be of interest to many modellers. Brysonís Catcher by Mike Christensen is an in-depth examination of single working using mechanical equipment to handle the tablet exchanges, and the opportunity was too good to miss, so l have included some notes about my personal experiences of single-line working and exchanging the tablet with signalmen on the line between Barnt Green and Evesham.


I would like to thank readers and contributors for their support throughout the 40 editions and hope you will join us in our new venture.
