Model Railway folk,

This collection of printed magazines has risen from 229 to 253 as I have found the complete years of 'Model Railways' for 1975 ans 1976.

Are these of no use to anybody?

It would seem such a shame to recycle them.


One way of recycling them without destroying them is to donate them to a local model railway club or to a local 'heritage railway' - the latter often then sell them on to visiting modellers/enthusiasts to help their funds out.

There are other internet forums specifically for railway modellers that you could try as well.

Oh, and welcome to the forum.

Hi John,

Many thanks for your comments. As you may have guessed, I am not a Railway Modellor as I inherited these magazines from a friend and I was hoping that somebody may find them useful.
Can you point me in the directions of other forums where I could list them please? or indeed any clubs in the Merseyside area?

Many, many thanks


For club information and another forum look at
There is a Railway Modellers' website (nothing to do with the Peco magazine) but I don't remember the address - something like 'rmweb', I think.
For heritage railways look at
