Train Collector December 2006

1st Edition of the Train Collector December 2006

The Train Collector is published quarterly in full colour using the latest digital print technology. Being produced in this way it has been possible to include a feature that would not have been possible by previous methods within the budget available, full colour!

The magazine caters for a wide range of model railway and toy train collecting interests. Subjects include: Hornby Dublo, Betal, Anbrico, GEM, Issmayer, Bassett-Lowke, Exley, Peco, Lone Star, Weimar etc. A relatively new feature will be articles for collectors of currently produced models which are clearly aimed at the collectors’ market.

TRAIN COLLECTOR also looks at past events and events to come. It journeys onto the Internet to see what is going on there and visits the auction rooms to keep you in touch with interesting items sold and with dates of future sales.
