    is this magazine worth the money? i have never seen one, i cant find it on any news stand to try it out before i subscribe to it , i thought it was kinda costly at 40.00 a year and only getting 7 or 9 issues ....... not even a years worth, but i would pay it if it was a good mag.

    what do you all think of it?

    If you're into Lionel and O scale, then you'll probably like it...

    CTT has good tech articles and product reviews- just as good as OGR. I usually pick it up at the LHS, or bookstore.

    Borders has it too. It's also possible your local library may subscribe to it (mine does). That would be a way to see several issues, and your tax dollars already paid for it anyway.

    I think it's a good magazine, but I agree you should look it over before committing to a year's subscription.

    Also, 9 issues is a year's subscription. It isn't published every month.
