Railroad Model Craftsman Magazine Has Stopped Publication
« on: August 25, 2014, 12:41:44 PM »
Railroad Model Craftsman magazine has stopped publication. According to their Facebook page (, last friday Carstens Publications has closed it's doors:

It is with regret that Carstens Publicatons, Inc. will be closing permanently at close of business on Friday, August 22, 2014. Carstens Publications, Inc. has been a leading publisher of leading hobby magazines for over 50 years. Unfortunately the current economic climate has placed us in this position. Discussion is continuing with several parties who expressed desire to take on the continuance of the magazines. At this point there is still hope that all three titles will remain in existence. But I can offer no guarantees. We thank you for your patronage over the years, and wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.
--Henry R. Carstens, President
Carstens Publications, Inc.

While they didn't do too many N scale articles (is it possible to do 'too many' N scale articles?), I did really enjoy their 'Essential Freight Car' series and how they did articles that wouldn't interest the other train magazines. Sorry to see them go...
