First of all, it's a great magazine! But don't take our word for it - here are some recent comments:

"I would like to say congratulations on producing such a wonderful, easy to read, informative and well laid out magazine..."

"A quick note to say how delighted I am to have discovered your new venture. The first two issues of MR have been read thoroughly. They fill a gap for those of us interested in modest sized ride-on minatures.  I was impressed by the style of the articles as well as the content..."

We've mapped the UK's Miniature Railways!
In February 2008 we embarked on an ambitious project to map evey miniature railway in the country. So far, we've found about 500, but we know there are many more out there. The map includes commercial lines, club lines and private lines. Most private lines are included without contact information, so privacy wil not be affected.
The map is available in A3 paper form at a price of £4, or £2 for Miniature Railway subscribers (with either option, please include £2 p&p UK, or £2.80 overseas). Telephone 01305 259998 for credit card payment, or send a cheque payable to: 'A to B', 40 Manor Road, Dorchester DT1 2AX. A PDF version of the map can be found at
