In addition to writing about my layout on this blog, from November 2010 to April 2013 I co-hosted and produced a podcast called The Model Railway Show. You’ll never guess what it’s about…
Over 52 episodes, plus specials, Jim Martin and I interviewed interesting people in the hobby, including: Manufacturers; Officials at the NMRA, Special Interest Groups and Historical Societies; Organizers of conventions, RPM meets and other activities; People with inspiring, unusual or even game-changing layouts; Publishers, editors and authors; and others.
We then presented two quick yet insightful stories on each episode. New episodes were published to the web on the 1st and 15th of each month, and it was free to subscribe.
We enjoyed creating The Model Railway Show but after two and a half years, the team decided it’s time to get back to our work benches and layout rooms.
The podcast was a volunteer effort – a labour of love – and while we enjoyed interviewing so many great guests and creating these shows, it demanded a fair bit of hobby time.
If you never tuned in, it’s not too late. Past episodes have been archived – they’re currently available via streaming audio at TrainLife, and available for downloading at the Internet Archive, so new listeners can hear all of the interviews we did. Here’s how to listen. I hope you will.
If you listened to the show, thank you – it was great to have you aboard!
