AMRM at the Liverpool exhibition

The Australian Model Railway magazine will be present at the AMRA (NSW) exhibition at Whitlam Leisure Centre, Memorial Avenue, Liverpool over the October long weekend (1,2,3 October). Our regular stand will be there, where we will have available the current issue of AMRM, plus some recent back issues and the full range of books published by our sister organisation, Eveleigh Press. You will also be able to subscribe to the magazine, purchase our 2012 calendar, add the latest back issue CD (Vol 10, covering issues 106-117, Jan/Feb 1981 - Dec 1982) to your collection and acquire any number of two-year volume folders for your AMRM magazines.

You can also join the Southern Cross Model Railway Association.

We will be having a few Exhibition specials from our book range:

Essays in Steam $10.00  (down from $27.00)

 Green Diesels $30.00

South Maitland Railways $30.00

There aren't many of these left, so get in early!

Our stand is No.40, over in the far corner next to Casula Hobbies. I will be at the exhibition all three day, but not necessarily on the stand, except between 11.30am and 1.30pm, when I will be nailed to the floor! Come and say hullo, particularly if you have an idea for AMRM!

Back issues: October 2011

The October 2011 issue of AMRM is now available as a back issue.

October 2011 contents
This issue features Scott Whitaker's HO scale VR prototype home layout, Marlee Junction, with photos by John Dennis. October traditionally features a narrow gauge layout from John's camera, but this year one could not be found, so John has utilised his talents to bring us a very fine 'wide gauge' layout instead.

The feature articles include Ian Phemister's efforts at improving an already very good r-t-r model, Andrew Collier's efforts at providing suitably iconic road vehicles for a post World War 2 layout and Peter Gleadall's marking of the 75th anniversary of the Sydney Model Railway Society.

All this, plus modelling hints, 'Beyond the Fence' and a Gallery featuring some of the best South Australian modelling.

We review the new HO scale r-t-r NSW single deck interurbans (U Boats) from Southern Rail, the RRZY five-pack container wagon kit from BGM and the Uhlenbrock Intellibox Command Station, plus the AMRM 2011 calendar, the latest VR advertising decal from Signs of all Kinds and new books from Train Hobby Publications and Sierra Publishing. We finish this issue off with six pages of new product news.

Purchase this issue of AMRM as a back issue.
