I have been in contact with British Fine Scale over the last few weeks and I know one of our members is building an EM prototype version

One of the topics I have discussed is the difference between SMP rail and our own rail.
I am also talking to them about stocking these kits for sale to members.
My own view is that it is a welcome addition to the EM scale and will hopefully encourage other modellers to move to
EM with a potential number of them joining the society. How it will impact sale of our RTR offerings is open to question but rather than ignore this we should embrace it. I believe there will still be a market for RTR points it just a matter how big. Only time will tell.

3D printing is already changing some aspects of our hobby and I guess this is the next step.
