CTT July 2017, 75 Tips?
Posted by EIS2 on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 9:11 AM

The July, 2017 CTT touts "75 Tips!" on the front cover in very large letters, but there is no page number shown.  The index doesnt show 75 Tips either.  So where are they?

Here's a tip:

Maybe it's a scavenger hunt for readers?

Bob, are you joking, or is that really the answer?

Funny, that is 8 more tips than pages of the magazine and I am giving them the covers. And they don’t tell you where they are or what they are. Wake up!  That don’t work for me.  Tongue Tied

I was going to count the 75 myself but wasn't in the bathroom that long.

Maybe next time.

Good morning all,

Look on the bright side.  When was the last time a particular item listed on the cover got this much commentary and discussion?  Better still, this was from an issue that is published in the normally slow months of indoor train activity.   Patially tongue in cheek and partially being serious, CTT could expand on this idea and do a "find all the tips" contest with a certain set of winners getting perhaps a year's free subscription.   Possibly they could highlight every tip listed in a given issue?   While I do read the issue from cover to cover, including the ads, I may review this particular one again to see if I can determine what all the 75 are just for my own curiosity.   I hope everyone has a good day.

Keep on training,

Mike C. from Indiana

I, too, was looking for the page number to go with the 75 tips.  Since no one is sure exactly where and what they are, here's another:  Buy cheap, sell dear.
