Re: NP Magazine

David Sieber


While the Northern Pacific Railway Historical Society's quarterly magazine is not online, they have many other resources online, including (1) a Resource Library with a growing number of databases and lists, with equipment and station rosters, equipment, structure, and track diagrams, photos, etc.; plus (2) NP modeling articles on rolling stock, depots, NP layouts and projects. See

The Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway Historical Society also has a quarterly magazine that is not online, but they have limited prototype and modeling resources available online, with photos "coming soon," at

To your second question, the Chicago & North Western Historical Society Modeler is another online modeling magazine, separate from the Society's print magazine which has a prototype emphasis. All four issues are online at

I know of no other railroad historical society webzines than the three you mentioned (B&O Modeler, Keystone Modeler, and S-CL Modeler) and the C&NW Modeler. These four are specifically for modelers, while the Society's corresponding print magazines consist primarily of prototype and historical articles.

Additionally, there is a non-historical-society webzine, the Model Railroad Hobbyist (aptly described by its title), at

I hope this helps, and if anyone knows of any other Society webzines, please add to this list!

Subject: [STMFC] NP Magazine

I asked this question but was unable to find what I was looking for. There was a post, I'm sure, on one of the three main groups (RPM-forum, STMFC and bbfcl) about a NP magazine being available to down load. I downloaded three issues but lost them before I could make back-up copies. I saw the post since Thanksgiving. I was wondering if someone knew where to go to get these again. If not, I will have to search the archives. The only other thing is it may have been the SP&S, but Iam almost positive it was NP.

Are there any other societies that have magazine downloads other than The Keystone, S-CL Modeler, B&O Modeler and the one I am searching for?

I belong to three societies and cannot afford all the magazines from different societies. I appreciated these societies for doing this.

Thank You!
