Model Railroad News returns to print!
White River Productions is pleased to announce
the acquisition of Model Railroad News
from LampLight Publishing
(Kansas City, January 28, 2012) — White River Productions has added Model Railroad News to the company’s family of publications. The agreement between LampLight Publishing and White River Productions was completed Friday, January 27, 2012. This development will return Model Railroad News to the hobby market after a short absence.
Model Railroad News’ most recent issue was October 2011. A delayed combined Jan/Feb 2012 edition of the magazine will hit newsstands and subscriber mailboxes in the coming weeks. A March 2012 is scheduled to follow in short order, representing the resumption of monthly issues. Both issues were in various stages of production when Model Railroad News ceased publication in December 2011.
“We are pleased to be able to welcome Model Railroad News to White River Productions,” said Kevin EuDaly, owner of White River Productions. “This magazine has been an important voice in the hobby and White River looks forward to continuing its high standards and quality for readers and manufacturers.”
Tony Cook will serve as editor for White River Productions. “I’m thrilled to continue being part of this important publication and will turbo-charge my efforts to make it a satisfying opportunity for model railroad enthusiasts to make the most of their leisure time pursuits,” said Tony Cook. Mr. Cook is a life-long model railroader and has been part of the magazine’s team since May of last year. “I look forward to working with our existing staff of very talented and knowledgeable writers to deliver what our readers and industry have come to expect in the pages of Model Railroad News.”
Mike Lindsay will remain as Publisher and Advertising Sales Manager. “This is a great opportunity to continue our long history of delivering the best source for model announcements and reviews,” he said.
Subscribers will be pleased to know existing subscriptions are to be honored by the new ownership. Fulfilment will be based on the number of remaining issues in existing subscriptions and will not be based on calendar months. “If a subscriber has six issues remaining on his subscription, we’ll deliver six issues,” EuDaly said.
