Started as a newsletter for members of the ‘Strange Modelers of Universal Trains’ group, its expanded coverage has made it of interest to the wider hobby.
While covering the various activites of our group still, it also looks at rural railway preservation news, model train news and a variety of other rail topics from time to time.
Back issues can be found HERE.

Australasia’s Most Different Railway Publication.
The aim is to bring a not so serious railfan publication to the, sometimes to serious, railfan hobby.
It is also to share information on many of the lesser known asian railway systems (an area that has lacked in coverage for a long time), well as the more known ones in our region.
Our first four issues were published back in 2007-8. Despite such a huge break, the requests for a return were regularly recieved.
Early in 2012 we decided the time was right for a return.
Even if it wasn’t, that did not stop us.
Editors: Brad Peadon and David Phillips.
Issue #8 is now available here on the website, but be sure to subscribe and not miss out on future issues.
Issue #9 will be a special publication being put together in conjunction with a Riverina branchline tour in December. Details in Issue #8.
Check out our new tours webpage.
This is a model railway publication based in the Riverina city of Wagga Wagga.
