Charter of uk.rec.models.rail

(Not Moderated)

uk.rec.models.rail is an unmoderated newsgroup for the discussion of railway model making, including conventional railways, tramways, industrial, narrow-gauge, trams, and monorails. Content should be relevant to the UK, for example: Discussion is open for all aspects of UK model railways, be they static, electric, clockwork, live-steam, internal combustion, pneumatic. There is no restriction of scale, though perhaps a general maximum should be Gauge 1, G scale and 16mm scale. Reviews of models, kits and accessories are encouraged. Participants are requested to keep to plain ASCII text for postings, and not use MIME or other more elaborate forms.


Adverts should be clearly marked in the subject line (the words "AD", "For Sale", "Exhibition" or "Commercial" at the start of the subject line are recommended).

Short (less than 20 line) commercial announcements relevant to UK rail model making are permitted (either manufacturers or traders), though extensive advertising lists are not permitted (these should be available by mail, ftp or http to interested readers). Commercial advertisers should not post adverts more frequently than once per month.

Private for-sale adverts are permitted, though should be short and concise. Discussion/negotiation should be via private email. Announcements by model railway clubs and societies are permitted, though should be concise and relevant. Announcement of model railway shows is permitted. Blatant off-topic or commercial advertising is not permitted.


Binaries are not permitted on this group, however references to FTP-able material and Web URL's are welcomed.
