TrainLife Magazine Archive

Postby Richard-B » Thu Oct 26, 2017 8:12 pm

Great News...
The TrainLife magazine archive has been restored... with free access:
Magazines include:
  • MRG: Model Railroading
  • RMJ - Railmodel Journal
  • PMM - Prototype Modeler
  • plus RailNews, Model Builder, and 1001 Model Railroading Ideas
For (semi-)obvious reasons... the magazines that have CD collections, i.e. MR, RMC, and NG&SLG...
don't have their pages on-line here.

An efficient way to use the TrainLife archive is in conjunction with the Trains Magazine Index from Kalmbach....
Note that registration is required to the Trains site... at the cost of several marketing emails per week...

Put a search term (like 'IPD") and a magazine from TrainLife's list (e.g. "Railmodel Journal")...
and you have your 'shopping list' to download pages from TrainLife.

Disclaimer: I will NOT be held responsible for any life costs incurred by spending WAY to much time looking through all these articles!!!

Very neat, I just looked through the oldest Model Railroading issue available. Definitely neat to see what was "cutting edge" back then.

Thanks for posting this Richard, well worth a few more email deletions.

Thanks for the post. I like Model Railroading ("ding")

It seems to have the 10+ page articles that MR really can't afford to run.
