Why not give them to someone involved with railway exhibitions as giveaways.
Just a thought.

It is indeed interesting that this thread continues.

I have heaps of Railway Modeller magazines. My wife desperately wants me to get rid of them, and I can understand that.

Problem is that to me they are historical documents, and an exercise in nostalgia.

We can still learn a lot from the layouts of the fifties and sixties, and it's all there, in the mags, in glorious black and white!

A couple of years ago, moderator Caz asked if anyone had a Cyril Freezer plan for a through terminus, published around 1962, or so. I replied excitedly saying, "I think I've got that!"

Sure enough, I did, promptly pulled it from the shelf, and scanned the plan to her.

I still haven't been able to squeeze that issue back into it's place on the shelf, Caz  >:( ;)

Anyway, it's a shame, because so many museums and places in the world are choc a bloc with historical documents, but ours are valueless, it would seem.  :(
