Large-Scale Railroading

A Quarterly Magazine Celebrating Rideable Scale Railroads





          Issue No. 5 of LSRR is at the printers and scheduled to be released and mailed in July. This issue is full of great articles and may be the best issue to date.

          This will be the last issue of LSRR for the foreseeable future (read a few years) as the job responsibilities of my real job have expanded such that I no longer have the time to produce the magazine in a quality and timely manner.

          I appreciate the kind words from and support of the subscribers and advertisers of the magazine. Thank you!

          I still have some extra copies of issues No. 1 – 4 and will have some extra copies of No. 5 as well for people interested in obtaining copies of those issues.

          Every subscriber who had issues left on his or her subscription beyond issue No. 5 will receive a refund check for the portion of their subscription they will not receive.








          Welcome to Large-Scale Railroading, a new magazine dedicated to celebrating large-scale rideable railroads. Our intent is to share, celebrate and discuss railroads in 7 ¼ to 24 inch gauge that exist in city parks, on private estates, at railroad clubs, hotels, malls and increasingly in larger back yards all over this great land.

          Some of the railroads we cover will be live steam, while others are powered by gasoline, batteries, CNG or other fuels. Some of the railroads we will feature offer mass produced equipment, others limited production or one offs. Some are built across hundreds of rural acres and others are built on less than two acres on residential lots. Some are the perfect multi-million dollar operations that we all dream we could one day own, others are more modest in size, but no less spectacular in their own way. Some are truly shortlines and beautiful in their simplicity and modesty.

          There are so many great railroad venues out there to visit and appreciate. Some are open to the public, some are clubs and memberships are required, some are private and by invitation only except special occasions… Get out and visit and support a railroad venue near you this weekend and remember ticket sales, purchases and donations keep those trains running for all of us to enjoy.
