Years ago I stopped subscribing for economic reasons and it no longer taught me much and when Aristo went under so did my purchases of new equipment ...

I know a fellow who wrote an article, rewrote it to satisfy the editor and it was never published.

Clam-bake is a funny company, they are driving me away from Classic Trains with crappy short features and a blurb advertising a Special Edition mag with everything I expected in CT!
Such a deal.

I could imagine that if GR went under that some industrious person would decide to make their own magazine, just like Marc did years ago and perhaps it would grow,

I do think that model railroading isn't very appealing to younger people. With computers, game consoles, and phones, people can be transported to imaginary worlds without any effort. And those wolds can be fantastic and fit right into someone's pocket. But I think of model railroading as a sort of folk art and an outlet for creativity.mind expansion, tension relief skill building and the like.

I echo what John said, it irks me when instead of making the magazine better and then perhaps charging more, they want to effectively charge more (fewer issues, special editions) and then if we give them money, they may improve...


Any product must be worth the asking price for now, this is not speculation unless they want to issue stock in the company in exchange for investing in the future.
