Model Railroading Tips in a Newsletter

News about Model Railroading Tips

(Good News:  The long-awaited newsletter will be starting up again soon under a new name, Tracks, formerly BYMRR-Zine.  I'm excited to be starting it up again. Hope you enjoy it!)

There seems to be a never-ending flow of new model railroading tips and techniques that I run into almost every day that are neat, exciting and even useful in building and maintaining model railroads. I really like these little gems, and I frequently find myself saying, "Now why didn't I think of that?!"

I thought it might be helpful to many model railroaders to try to put a lot of these items together in an email-based newsletter that could be printed out and stored in the railroad room for easy reference.

Thus the former BYMRR-Zine (pronounced beemer-zeen) concept was born - now known as Tracks! This monthly publication contains lots of tips, techniques and news items, compiled into a one-page easy-to-read printable text that will help you build, enhance and maintain your model railroad empire. All credits and references will be provided if available.

Of course, if any of you wish to submit a tip for entry into Tracks), don't hesitate to fill out the form on the Comments Page. Contributions are welcome and encouraged!

If you would like to subscribe, sign up below. And remember, it's easy to unsubscribe at any time. The last thing I want to do is fill up your email box with things you don't need or want.
