WHAT RAILROAD MAGAZINES DO YOU READ?

Post by Alcoman »

With all the choices out there, what railroad magazines do you read or avoid?
I read on a regular basis; Railpace and Diesel Era. Once an awhile, Trains,Railroad explorer and Railfan.
I avoid contributing and reading Extra 2200 South. They used to a very good publication, but since it was sold, it has not been the same since.
I get alot of information from the web. Trains and Railfan are ok for an special article they may have, but to pay $5.00 a piece or more for magazines ,it gets expensive.

What are your thoughts?

Hi,

When I get a chance, I head over to Borders, and head to their magazine racks and spend some time reading those magazines that interest me. Usually, I just read them. They carry the usual train magazines, and yes, I am usually not the first one to read them.

Railpace, FD&S, and TRP. Other magazines when they have articles related to my admittedly provincial interests.
