Hi guys, I am about to set up a new magaizine, entitiled the depot.

I would really appreciate it if I could get some articles written/pictures submitted for the magazine.

If you would like something included, please PM me, or email/MSN me on paignton_railway_centre [at] hotmail.com

I hope to get it released for the end of the month.

I look forward to seeing some submissions :)

Hmm no offence but is there really much point? The Railway Herald already do a great job, and what with the 'Railtalk' magazine as well, how do you know people are going to read it?

I think the cover looks quite attractive, but I think I agree with Max about people not reading it. No harm in having a go though, eh? :)

Nope!

First i need to sort out pdfs in photoshop elements unless I buy photoshop CS2.

It may just be more of a picture magazine. I prefer to look at pictures myself :p

Good luck with it Liam. I certainly won't be complaining about another free online magazine - the more the merrier :p The cover is simple yet clear and well laid out.

By the looks of your screenshot, you're doing it in Word. Download Open Office and you can save it as a PDF with that (or just send it to me and I'll do it ;)).

I agree with Gizmogle about the cover looking good. If the it looks good with a consistent style throughout then it should be good. I'd be happy to proof read and offer advice if needed. Might submit the odd photo and article too.

Sorry, I kind of missed that screenshot! Looks very good actually, I'll certainly proof read to if you would like somebody to.

Thanks guys.

I have switched to photoshop after the advice of Tom.

Although i am having problems in Photoshop elements in creating a more than 1 page document. Does anybody know how to do this?

Depot the?

Anyway, it looks ok but I must say you like 442s tooooo much! They are only EMUs that buzz like the rest of them (apart from 313s and such) But like what has been said, there is too many... But I bet this will be based on mostly Dawlish and the surrounding places ;)

Good luck on it though!

The Depot you prat ;)

Ideally I was looking for some articles to be written and pictrues to be submitted for the rest of the country, as obviously I am not going to write about London, as i don't know London well enough to do it ;)

Honestly you need to sort the way the title is written as it reads 'depot the' and doesn't look right, put the small 'the' above 'depot'.
Photo looks good but is slightly to cropped and is distracting.
Other then that good luck and hope it works out.
