Another great issue is on its way to members (if it has not already arrived), even before September has actually arrived.

Train Collectors Society Sept 2017 Collector cover

There is a fascinating mix of articles, though the theme this time round is on accessories, from the efforts of Bing to (relatively)  modern plastic kits (both originating in Germany as it happens) with plenty in between, not to mention warning signs in case you wander too near an ungated level crossing while absorbed.

There is also a great photo piece on the King family layouts covering the period 1930 to 1965.

For more details of the contents of the September issue just go to the Train Collector page here.
