Hello everyone! I'm new here but not new to toy trains.
Posted by Carey TrainLady on Monday, July 27, 2020 5:42 PM

I'm here to learn and grow in my knowledge about Prewar O Gauge, and a wee bit about early AF too at the moment. I have been into toy trains and model trains since 1994. Started with G scale, and moved to newer and a bit of vintage O Gauge when the Polar Express came out, AND am heavily these last few years into Standard Gauge. I currently have two highly detailed Standard Gauge layouts in our home. Recently got me some late 1920s American Flyer, and looking and acquiring prewar Lionel. On my Std. Gauge upstairs layout, I have an O gauge loop that runs across a Mountain ridge (which I built during the sheltering-in this Spring) and through the classic Hellgate Bridge. My next big project is a soon-to-be O gauge layout in its own deidcated room. I am an operator, not a collector. I love the prewar litho and tinplate!

Hello all.Looks like I signed up here 2016, I must have forgot I did it.

I am a subscriber to CCT. I thought I was renewing my subscription when they sent the notice to me, but I actually signed up for the Classic Trains. Duh, Oh well why not. Smile

My question is I am only going to get 4 issues per year?

I got the Summer 2020 issue.

It also said I get 6 free gifts from the Fallenflags remembered, I have got none yet.

Would you know how long it takes for them to get these to me?

Thanks,ED

Thanks, But by looking at their advertisment that I got with the forms, it looks to be actual magazines.

There is no mention of downloading them.

I guess I should really contact them with the question.

Right, "Classic Trains" is a quarterly, but it's a GOOD quarterly!  Some issues are better than others (naturally) but there hasn't been a bad one yet!  And some really hit it out of the park!  Well worth the money!

They're magazine sized booklets, only a few pages in total, and they wil come in the mail.

Welcome!  Yes, the CTT forum is a great place to learn!  Take a look at this thread:
