Why has Railway Herald taken the route of ‘Subscriptions’ for the magazine?

The magazine started as a ‘one-off’ publication in 2005 and quickly grew into a hobby. Within 12 months it had become a part-time job for one, with help from other people. Now six years later, it is a full-time job for several people. Only a certain amount of expansion within the magazine can be accommodated with the existing team, and this is one reason why we have brought new editorial members on board. All of this requires funding, and although we are grateful to our advertisers, we were faced with a stark reality of charging readers a small amount, less than 40p per issue, or ceasing the publication totally.

Is it possible to obtain a printed version of Railway Herald?

Unfortunately not. Railway Herald is a purely digital magazine delivered over the internet 47 weeks a year. Although we would like to be able to offer a printed option, the costs would make it prohibitively expensive when printing and postage are taken into account, plus with delivery times copies would arrive on readers doorsteps only a day or two before the next issue was published!
