G Scale Magazines

Latest update: 31 August 2016


This page provides an overview of G scale magazines. The magazines listed here are fully dedicated to G scale. There are several magazines out there that focus on the smaller scales, with the occasional article about G scale, but I chose to not include them here.

For each magazine, I listed their website and some additional info. Make sure you always check their website for the latest pricing info and terms and conditions regarding shipping costs, subscription cancellation etc.

Why do I include some German magazines on this page? Well, if English/American is your first language, you probably won’t master the German language. However, people from all over the world visit G Scale News, and I know some English and Dutch people are subscribed to German magazines. In my case: my first language is Dutch, and I consider English my second language. I taught myself the basics of German language, so I decided to get a subscription to the German “Gartenbahn Profi” magazine.
