Has steadily gone downhill since the 1970's. Do not care to pay for all the advertising. Articles are only for the very experienced modelers anymore. Not a good value for the $$
This magazine is full of useful info for model railroaders of all levels. Info you wont throw out, plus articles and pics of z-scale to garden scale. Great for gift giving!
When I was 7 years-old my father bought the very first Model Realroader magazine and got most of the early additions. I still have them and have every one since January 2003, when I took up the hobby after retirement. Model Railroader magazine is great reference material.
Model Railroader's price from Kalmbach Publishing is 42.95. Where is the savings?
I have never seen a Model Railroader Special Edition or regular monthly ones have so much information. It is fantastic putting everything in one book. I don't get to pick them up every month so when I saw this one it was just want I was looking for. I can not thank Model Railroader enough.
I have been a model railroader for more than 60 years and consider Model Railroader magazine a valuable resource and informative tool for model railroaders.
