Magazine Index, 1997 onwards.

In connection and with the support of MODEL RAIL we are able to bring you a quality index of one of the most popular British Railway modelling magazines available covering all issues from 1997.

This was accomplished by many people over the years with Mark Patrick, Ian Murray and myself covering the issues from 1997 to 2005.

In 2005 Brian Martin took over the role with 3 years of active indexing plus support for two years prior to that but in 2010 he took a well earned rest and returned to active modelling. I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to Brian for all his assitance on the Index.

Ian MacDonald then took over in 2010 and spent 6 years of hard work collating the MR Index for you and included a spreadsheet version, available via the Huddersfield MRC website. Superb work Ian.

In January 2017 David Watson took over the role of collating the Model Rail Index and completed 3 years worth of entries from 2016 to the end of 2018. Many thanks David.

In 2020 Jane Skinner an Editorial Assistant for Model Rail and Steam Railway took over collating the information and brought the index up to date. Many thanks Jane.

My sincere thanks go to all those that have assisted me in putting the index together:
Jane Skinner (2019 onwards),
David Watson (2016 to 2018),
Ian MacDonald of Huddersfield MRC (2010 to 2016),
Brian Martin of MERG (2005-2010),
Mark Patrick and Ian Murray (1997-2005).

I would like to thank Richard Foster, Editor, Model Rail and Jane Skinner for all their help in bringing this up to date and taking it forward.
