Magazines

It's surprising how visible model railway magazines are on the shelves of newsagents especially at airports and railway stations. Prior to dipping my toe into this hobby a few months ago, I didn't know anyone who was even remotely interested in model railways. Yet, as I say, there seemed to be plenty of magazines serving this interest group.

The same is true in France - even more so - and you see them for sale in their supremarkets too.

One from UK..



And, one from France.



Echelle is French for scale. (I think.)
