Confused about Trains digital edition.
Posted by Lithonia Operator on Tuesday, July 13, 2021 6:42 PM

My subscription is for print and digital. How do I access the digital copy of the mag?

Wow, 76 views, and no one knows how to see the digital version of the magazine???

I've known that my subscription (not by my own choice, actually) gives me access to the digi vesion also. But since I like the physical copy, I've never looked for the digi version before, which I assume is a pdf and an exact copy of the print version. Where is it? (I realize that most of the digital content on the Trains website is for Unlimited members only.)

I know nothing, but have you tried here?  https://www.trains.com/trn/magazine/current-issue/

 

When I go there I get an invitation to subscribe. Perhaps you as a subscriber might be offered a link instead?

PS, I doubt it will be a PDF, more likely some format that requires connectedness to read. Otherwise a PDF might get shared with nonsubscribers.

I see exactly what you see. No link. And I am logged in.

???

You're right of course; would probably not be a pdf.

It is in a less than obvious place.

Despite what you'd suspect, "Current Issue" is more about the current issue than the acutal current issue.  The readable current issue is found in the Archives.

Thanks, guys! Yes

I never thought of the archive, always assumed that was only past issues.
