Discuss model railway topics and news that do not fit into other sections.
I used to get Railway Modeller sporadically; then when I got more serious about modelling I got Model Rail regularly as I liked its "how to do stuff" style. I bought it every month for a few years along with occasional issues of Hornby and Railway Modeller. As I'm a bit of a hoarder the stack of magazines soon began to take over. Leafing through them they're all not great value for money in that they're mostly ads; even the articles themselves are little more than ads. My strategy now is to buy one only when they're giving free stuff away - not rubbishy DVDs but the occasional kit or free building download.

Me too. I must sort out my old scanner though to collate the articles I want to re-reference.
Way back in the early days (late 80s/early90s) of 'PETERSDALE' I religiously bought Railway Modeller. Then as 'PETERSDALE' was in the 'transit years' I didn't buy any modelling magazines at all. Then at sometime during the last 10 years I got British Railway Modelling on a cheap quarterly subscription. It's quite good now they've revamped it in the last couple of years. It keeps dropping through the letter box every month because I've never bothered to cancel it.
