N scale in the informations age.

So avid N scaler, obviously you get at least some of your modeling info on the internet or you wouldn't be reading this now.  :)

My question for the gallery is, what model railroad magazines do you subscribe to (or buy most issues of.) And if your answer is "None", let us know that too. (No need to slag on any particular title. We'll just assume any title you don't list, just isn't of interest or use to you and leave it at that.)

I don't currently subscribe to any.   I like the Model Railroader and RMC digital editions and both recently expired and I haven't bothered to re-up.  Not sure I will for now.   I would subscribe to the N mags digitally but obviously they don't offer that for now.   I will pick up the odd mag (plus the N-scale mags) if something interests me, but mostly I just don't read the mags much anymore.

Model Railroader.  I also buy Model Railroad Planning, Great Model Railroads,  and the On30 Annual.

I will occasionally pick up an issue of N Scale Railroading.

I subscribe to Model Railroader, Railroad Model Craftsman, N-Scale and N Scale Railroading.  I like getting the information digitally, but I still want the paper version as well.

Carter

Edit:  I forgot to include the N Scale Enthusiast membership magazine and the UPHS Streamliner, which sometimes has modeling articles of interest.

I like Model Railroad Hobbyist.  Free, online, decent pictures and articles.  Other than that it's 90% forums like these.

    None.
   do belong to the ELHS-The Diamond,NYS&WT&HS-The Reflector.
   pick up most issues of Diesel Era at a not so local HS.
   may get TRP,Classic Trains when items of interest are in them.
   but mostly get books and RP CYCs.
   that usually breaks the hobby budget.
   Edit- is X2200 South still published ?
   did subscribe during the 70s,but havnt seen any recent issues for
   years.

I only subscribe to the Conrail Quarterly (via my CRHS Membership).

However, I frequently read (if they seem like a good edition):
Classic Trains (almost every edition)
Trains (some)
Railfan & Railroad (frequent)
N Scale (About half the time)
N Scale Railroading (Also about half the time)
RMC (A quarter of the time)
Model Railroade (Read it while visiting my parents, who subscribe)

I also download and usually read every edition of Model Railroad Hobbyist.

In order of importance to me:

N Scale Railroading
Model Railroad Hobbyist
N Scale
Model Railroader
Railroad Model Craftsman

I also read the magazines of various historical societies that would rank ahead of some of the above, but there is of course no ad content.

Yes, forgot about the society magazines/newsletters.   I read the FOBNR and sometimes the Katy and Rock Island ones.

I also read Cowcatcher Magazine, which used to be a small regional publication that has now become fairly large and covers almost all of the Midwest, Midsouth, and Southwest U.S.

N Scale, from a hobby shop, if there's a specific article that appeals to me.

I may pick-up Model Railroader maybe once every two years at a newsstand, then later kick myself for spending that much money on something I'm done with in 10 minutes. :|

Model Railroad Hobbyist 

I will pick up Model Railroader or one of the N Scale magazines if there are topics/layouts that interest me but I don't subscribe to them anymore
