    Hi Gang,

    It's been a while since I've explicitly "advertised" the Unofficial Micro-Trains Release Report. However, since my last note on my modest endeavor I suspect there are any number of new members here. And then there's that "rest of life" which I won't get into.

    Anyway, the Unofficial Micro-Trains Release Report or UMTRR is my independent review and commentary on all Micro-Trains releases and pre-orders. I've been doing this since 1996 and I'm currently working on Issue #268 covering the April releases and news. Each issue is a .PDF that runs between 20 and 30 pages depending on what's coming, or announced, from MTL. It's issued monthly, usually as soon as I can get the coverage of the Weathered Releases done but occasionally subject to the "day job."

    Subscriptions are free and worth at least that much. Yes, really! Also, no free "cookies" or anything else, no salesman will call, there is no advertising and I don't sell or otherwise offer my distribution list to anyone else. (I've had offers! Politely declined.) In fact, that list doesn't live online anywhere. I don't use "the cloud." (What if it rains?)

    For more including past issues and how to subscribe (it's easy!), here's the website...

    I'm pleased to count many long-time N Scalers and TB folks among my readers, and I'd be happy to have you join them.

    Cheers,
    George

    Hi George, I'm a member of your list and find it a very enjoyable read. Thank you for putting this release report together and thank you for adding the extra tidbits like the history of the prototype cars, car counts etc. that you add to your report.

    Kudos to you George. I was a subscriber, for many years when I was active in Kadee/MT. This is a must for anyone with interest!

    Yes, I cover everything MTL releases or announces. It's been a little slow on the Narrow Gauge front but they did log car three-pack pre-orders in both HOn3 and Nn3 in February. Just starting on the Z Scale releases for April... better get going, George :)
