The Journal is online


The NZ Model Railway Journal has been digitally archived covering the period 1977 to the latest issue - available on your desktp, tablet or smart phone. The archive is accessible from the Home page of our website and will be live with the despatch of the September 2020 issue from the printers. (The Archive is being extended back to 1962 shortly.)

Don't worry, this is not a replacement for your printed magazine delivered to you by post each quarter.

The Journal archive is a digital copy of every magazine which enables you to access over 40 years' worth of extraordinary content focussed on New Zealand railways and New Zealand railway modelling. The archive is accessible by members of the Guild, those with a current paid subscription. 

You are able to flick through every edition, you can expand any page  for closer reading and examination of photographs, and you are able to download individual pages for your own modelling purposes.

We are delighted to bring this exciting service to our members.
