Has anyone yet to receive (if they subscribe) or see in the shops either the December copy of Model Railroader or the November copy of Railfan & Railroader magazines ?

Hi Paul, I received my December issue of Model Railroader last Wednesday. I do not subscribe to Railfan and Railroad, I cannot help you with that inquiry.
Cheers,
Rich S.

Hi Paul, good to hear your Model Railroader arrived. There is a very nice article on page 34 dealing with Espee (Southern Pacific) modeling being done in the UK, along with Eric Brooman's excellent article on his up to date Utah Belt. MR is definitively on their A game with the December issue.

Cheers,
Rich S.

Did someone say Southern Pacific?  :scowl:

Oh yeah, I'm a big fan of his modelling.  :drool:
I saw the article on MRH and also on YouTube.
Fantastic modelling there!
Their module concept is just right for me.
Of course, one thing that I don't understand....the size of models.
You know how I feel about it,  :NGaugersRule:

Hi Rich,
So far I have only flicked through the magazine but yes I spotted the SP feature which looks very interesting. Nice that the UK could get a mention.
Plymouth is "just down the road" for me so hopefully I may get to see it sometime perhaps at the Exeter MRS show.
Regards
Paul

Not either of the quoted mags, but my copy of Railpace Magazine from deepest Pennsylvania turned up today after taking about 2 weeks longer than usual to make it across the Atlantic.

My January Model Railroader has not arrived but as my subscription lapsed with the December issue I don't really expect it to. Sorry I can't be more help.

Hi Paul, Yes my January 2019 Model Railroader arrived just a few days ago. Hopefully yours will arrive soon?

Hi Rich,
Thanks for the advice.
This morning they were delivered by the postman. Both came together as per last month.
One had a German label on it so perhaps they go via the Continent on the way to the UK.

Hi Paul, Good to hear your magazines arrived before the end of the month. That is an odd routing, considering there are regular air flights between New York City and London. I believe here in the States International mail is handled by FedEx, It's possible FedEx has a major distribution center in Germany?
Cheers,
Rich S.

An interesting thing occurred with my subscription to MR. I signed up for the electronic version several years ago (I have entirely too many paper copy MR's starting from back in the late '60's) but I received a paper version of the January edition. I'm thinking that it's maybe because it's the 85th anniversary of the magazine. Anyone else out there have a similar experience?

Oh, and by the way... Happy New Year!
