Scale Model Traction & Trolleys Quarterly Subscriptions

A MAGAZINE THAT CATERS TO THE TRACTION ENTHUSIAST

Welcome to the fascinating world of Street Railways and Interurban Lines. Did you ever feel the desire to explore the by-gone era of the trolley car? Did you ever wonder what it might have been like for your parents or grandparents to travel to their jobs, go shopping or visit relatives and friends in various parts of the city? Scale Model Traction & Trolleys Quarterly can help show you.

Each issue contains News Reports, Book Reviews, up-to-date information on museums and trolleyfest events, plus a feature story on a prototype traction line along with a visit to a scale model traction layout. Our premiere feature, Allan's Gallery, is a photo/caption column that takes a historical look back at prototype traction systems, with rare scenes from the extensive collection of Allan H. Berner.

With each issue we try catering to every aspect of the traction hobby, from the arm chair hobbyist to the active modeler, and certainly not forgetting the avid historian, there is something for everyone! Scale car drawings, maps and track plans are often featured, and alternate issues are printed with a full page four-color cover.

So why not take a look at this unique sector of the
railroad hobby.  For  a special GET ACQUAINTED
