    Well, this month I never recieved my MRR mag, so I called and had it within a week. And today when I got home I was pleasantly surprised to see a small box, yes, box, with the Model Railroader logo. It is my first DVD in the Dream, Plan, Build series of DVD's from MRR. Ever DVD costs $9.95 and comes with a collectors coin. You pay for every DVD. I have not watched it all yet, but have previewed some of it as they encourage you to do. I think I will get it, it would appear to have well over an hour on it. Anybody else get this offer, or are they telling the truth when they say I am a specialy selected valued customer?

    From what I read over at the model railroader forums, everyone gets that dvd. I hear they have new dvds every few weeks.

    I got it a couple of years ago. In fact, a lot of us here got it right around the same time. It was ok. More like a sampler, with teasers.
    Since it was unsolicited, I didn't pay for it. I kept getting bills for the $9.95, until I called and told them that because it was unsolicited, By law, I didn't have to pay for it...(Got a NASCAR DVD too, the same way).They were quite cordial, and didn't fight, or push a sales pitch, just said "OK..We'll take you off the list".
    Gave it to a friend, who actually got the library. I borrow them from time to time.
    I still have the coin....Somewhere....

    Yeah, I got one as a "valued subscriber" when it first came out. :rolleyes: They sent it unannounced and asked to either keep it and pay for it or send it back. The also urged me to subscribe to get one every month. I played a few minutes of it and that's all, I figure it was more than I was willing to pay since I had no idea how many were in the series. Then I lost track of it and couldn't send it back if I wanted to, so after about the third nag letter, I called and told them I didn't know where it was, and they stopped nagging. A few months later I found it in my laptop case.:oops: :oops: I have yet to play it through.

    Probably some very good stuff there, but very expensive in the long run. As I recall, there was a discussion here since a lot of members got one at the time.

    Well, DVDs like this are great when you are hung up on the couch ill, stuck on a business trip and not in the mood to watch the tube in the hotel room, family members having a social gathering in the other room that you don't feel like participating in...:D

    Well, seems to be mixed reactions, this particular one has subjects of interest to me, and so I think Ill keep it. It says I should get one every few months and that I can watch before I chose to purchase, it could be like renting, only for free, but heck I pay enough to get the mag.

    Just a suspicion, and I don't know of anyone that this has happened to, but I'm betting that if you send one back, they put an * next to your name. Send a second one back and that'll be the last one you get...Publishers don't like that rent-for-free stuff.:cry:

    I got it about a month ago. I watched it and found some of it interesting, while the rest of it was quite outdated.
    I didn't send it back, but I intend to.

    I watched quite a bit of it last night but I was REALLY tired and my eyes keep closing. I am still learning in this hobby, and found quite a bit of good info. There was some with a man who is modeling northern MN (Im doing the DMIR) and I saw an ore dock. So it gets my:thumb:. Also, a very good section on painting backdrops, which is what im doing.​
