I suggest you get Auran's permission before using the Trainz logo. Good luck with the magazine thing, though.

You may want to consider creating a magazine style CMS site using Joomla, Drupal or other CMS with a template resembling a magazine layout (Google is your friend). You can restrict registration as you wish, contributors can add content freely and you or some small designated group can decide what actually gets published. Seems like a lot less work than laying out pages all the time. The other bene is that you aren't going up against the much better established Virtual Railroader which is more of a traditional magazine

I am always visiting the forms and I always see some great threads so what if there was a magazine that had these discussions as articles and a cover story that whas a layout that sombody posted on the foums. If There are enough people who like this idea then maybe I can start the magazine.

Virtual Railroader is the active one. they have been around for some time now. --> http://www.virtualrailroader.com/
there was also one that titaniclover created; which I worked on however that one turned to dust really after its first release.

I wish you luck.
The magazine was called "Trainz Magazine."

In theory it was a great idea, however support and time just was not enough to keep it running. It is hard than you think...

Cheers,
Adam

I just wanted to bring this old thread back. For the people that thought Trainz Magazine would never work, I have a total of 177 subscribers including the email group and TM members. I get 2 new subscribers every day.
