Hornby Magazine

Hornby Magazine

Edited by Mike Wild, Hornby Magazine set out with a new approach and was aimed squarely at newcomers and returnees to the hobby, as well as those who were established in the hobby.

Its mix of inspirational and shows-you-how features, coupled to the best model railway photography and latest product reviews soon caught on as modellers everywhere discovered its fresh, new approach, talking in a language that everyone understood and not assuming everyone reading it was full of technical knowledge.

There will always be at least 90 pages of editorial in every issue of Hornby Magazine, making it the best value read of all the model railway titles. It is regularly promoted at retail outlets and can be found at W H Smiths, Tesco, Sainsbury, Asda, Morrisons, Mills and many other good news outlets, including independent newsagents. Where it isn’t stocked, it can be ordered. Just ask!
