Visitors to Kalmbach Publishing Co. often pause at each magazine's 'Wall of Covers,' while they are sexy, it serves a functional purpose.
We received our advance copies of the December Classic Toy Trains yesterday! Today we have the pin-up meeting for January, so we are off and running for 2017!
This is our "Wall of covers." We post the covers from four year's worth of CTT to try and avoid duplicate styles, locos (especially that darned Santa Fe paint scheme!), not too many this or that (usually postwar versus modern locomotives), and of course the tag lines.
When we receive the January issue, we drop the oldest year, move the covers down, and begin anew!
Thanks for a great 2016!
