Editor Hal Miller's letter to readers about new website and online membership Logo
Trains. Like you, we love them.

That's why we at Classic Toy Trains are excited to announce we will be launching an all-new, redesigned website for you in just a couple of weeks. You’ll still be able to access all the content you’ve come to love: layout visits, stories about fabulous Lionel and American Flyer layouts, and our extensive selection of how-to tips and techniques. But, you’ll see it all presented in a fresh new design, with a site that’s easier to navigate and has faster loading times. Classic Toy Trains subscribers will still have open access to the Track Plan Database and other exclusive content.

But that’s not our only news! The new and improved will be part of our all-new hub, will house content from not only, but our entire family of train and modeling brands: Classic Trains, Model Railroader, Trains, and Garden Railways. Through, we will provide an immersive experience for anyone who loves trains: prototype, historical, modeling. It will be easy to navigate across websites to explore all our great information, how-to, news, and hobby content.

For those looking for an even deeper experience, we are pleased to announce our new Unlimited membership plan. Unlimited members will have access to ALL we have to offer, including our premium video series and digital archives for Classic Toy Trains Magazine and of our sister publications, going all the way back to issue no. 1. In addition to that and other online-exclusive content, you’ll receive discounts on items in our hobby store and the opportunity to buy tickets for special events such as photo charters and tours before we make them available to the public.

As you take a look around and explore, know that we’re putting the same dedication and attention into it we do for all of our print products.

Try You'll love the experience.
