Looks interesting, especially as it is devoted to our small scale but... I reckon 4.95 is a bit steep when compared to 3.95 for Railway Modeller :hmmm:

One thing I've noticed on the website is,

N GAUGE NOW is an A4 full-colour one-off magazine

Does it means it's a one off edition I wonder?

Thanks for all the positive comments.

Check out the website you will find N Gauge Now is 4.95 post free or 3.70 to N Gauge SOC members with their membership number until December 31st 2013.

At the moment we are calling it a one off "annual" but we do hope to make it a regular, perhaps quarterly, publication in the new year depending on reaction from all you lovely "N Gaugers" out there!

PS We have already received lots of positive feedback from our launch at the Warley NEC Show and welcome all your comments to help us take this project forward into 2014.

Is it any good? - yes.

A good mixture of articles, covering a wide range of subjects including the history of the scale. Quite different to what is found in the normal magazines. I think it's what we've been lacking. Ideally it would become a quarterly publication, but I guess that depends on whether the economics work out.

A few very minor criticisms: the authors need to resist the urge to keep pressing the exclamation mark key! The cover graphics are curiously reminiscent of the 1970s. Some of the photographs are reproduced poorly, often with a colour cast. I'm sure these are just teething problems that can be overcome.

Set against that, clearly a lot of work has gone into the articles, and with 50 pages of content (excluding adverts) it's well worth the cover price.

With Grahame Hedges' British 1:148 N Gauge Modelling book with us as well, it's quite a good moment in N publishing.

No connection with either publishers.

Definitely worth a try, and if it is any good then we may well have another N Gauge dedicated publication besides the N GS (which is brilliant but I would welcome another).

Ordered mine.   :claphappy:
