Folks, I know this subject was discussed about a year ago, where discussions centred around the demise of the Great Western Railway Journal. Do you think there is enough material about GWR of old in mainstream publications and enough online content perhaps about the up to date First Group run GWR company that a separate GWR magazine is not needed, or do you think that there is a market for such a magazine?
Should it be a printed magazine or perhaps online only? Pros and cons with both of course.
I feel that if a publication did come about, it should cover GWR in the steam era but also heritage railways that run on the old lines in modern times - and further afield where GWR locos operate on other lines. I think topics on modern rolling stock, stations, improvements to the network and community projects should be written about too; and why not have some material for modellers too.
What are your thoughts on the above? Do let me know. Thanks
