Model Railroading: Don’t Get Left Behind at the Station
contributed by Emma Reynolds
In the digital age, many people may wonder what sort of appeal remains for traditional hobbies like model railroading. Some might even suggest, “What’s the point?” But the truth is that building and operating a model railroad is just as fun and relevant today as it was years ago with plenty of events for people of all ages.
The ACTMRS has a large library of railway related magazines, some dating back to the 1930s.
These magazines are not for loan but articles may be obtained at the cost of 10 cents per page for photocopying. Alternatively the magazines may be view where they are stored. Most are now held at the Shed.
There are four main groups; Australian, American, British and European. See the next pages for a list of the magazines held.
The ACTMRS welcomes the contribution of magazines by members who no longer have the space to keep all their back issues.
