Where buy Railway Modeller single issue in US?

I know I've seen this UK magazine on news stands from time to time (Railway Modeller).  I'd like to grab the new Jan, 2019 issue because there is a feature on Jools Holland's home layout  (yes, Jools Holland from the band Squeeze many years ago, and also a contributing musician and songwriter with many other famous players, host of TV shows, and a producer).
The thing about Rod Stewart's home layout got me thinking about Holland, and then I discovered that there is an article on his layout.

So... where do folks find copies of this?
Do major brick and mortar bookstores like Barnes and Noble carry it?

I think I've seen it at my local Barnes and Noble. If there's one near you I'd give them a call.

FYI, the January 2019 issue of Continental Modeller magazine also has an article on Jools Holland's home layout.
Supposedly, it covers a different area of the layout than that shown in the Railway Modeller article.

Does Mr. Holland have two layouts?  One cover says HO, the other 00.

No, one is H0 (H-zero), the other 00  (double-zero).   :D :trollface:

Yes, I know that the British use 00 SCALE on HO GAUGE track, but there are also those who model in true 00, with the correct gauge, and modelers who have more than one layout.  Since it was stated earlier that the two articles covered different parts of his layout, I thought that he might actually have separate layouts, in different scales.

And, yes, "HO" started as "H0", but I haven't seen that used in years.

I just figured that since double-zero was also derived from zero gauge (not Oh), half-zero would be the proper term.  It is probably still used in England.

Well, as it turns out, they also sell single copies in digital form, so I just bought it that way and read it on my computer.  The larger bookstores like Barnes & Noble are around here, but not all that convenient (translation: it's in a mall, and I despise malls).

Thank you, everyone, for suggestions on where to find the magazine.

Half-zero might be used in Britain for all I know.  I haven't seen it outside of some very old (1940s/50s) magazines, but all I read are American model magazines.  Not exactly representative of the rest of the English-speaking world!

Even in European catalogs "HO" seems to be written with the letter, not the number, but it could still be CALLED half-zero for all I know.  I suspect that Americans are the only English speakers who routinely call the number zero "OH", just like the letter.  It can be confusing when entering data into a computer from a phone call.

Of course, we also call the last letter of the western alphabet "zee" instead of "zed"....
