The TLRS publication Tramfare is an A5 size magazine.
Tramfare is sent free to all TLRS members six times a year, so it is strongly recommended that you join the TLRS, as this is by far the cheapest way to receive it.
It can be purchased from a number of outlets including the National Tramway Museum, London Transport Museum and Ian Allan bookshops.
Single copies of the latest issue of Tramfare can be purchased on-line from TLRS Publications.
It includes illustrated articles on
- tramway systems,
- all areas of tramway modelling,
- Society news and
- a diary of talks and exhibitions.
In the latest issue:
On the cover: Appropriately enough, we have London Transport tram 300 to help commemorate the 300th issue of the TLRS journal, now known as 'Tramfare'. The late Bill Haynes took the photograph c.1950 in Woolwich, but it has been digitally coloured for this special occasion by John Prentice, the current TLRS Chairman.
We have Part 1 of a useful article on how to photograph model trams in a more realistic way. Philip Smithies focuses on depth of field and how to get everything in the picture sharp, with the help of some computing power.
Roger Monk describes his voyage of tramway discovery in Aberdeen and shows us what he found.
Colin Brown introduces us to some tramway leftovers in Luton.
Alan Catlow gives us a little more on Nelson Corporation Tramways to add to the previous issue's main article.
It's the end for Leith's old tram depot and Kenneth Williamson mourns its passing.
Our regular feature of Model Tram News will not disappoint with some very interesting new models and kits.
Advertisements for model trams, both as kits and as RTR.
Regular features on exhibitions, meetings and meeting reports.
44 pages of tramway indulgence for only £3.60 a copy.
If you subscribe to 'Tramfare' by joining the TLRS, you will save a large amount each year compared to regularly buying copies in booksellers or at museums etc.
Articles on tramway subjects are always welcome, model or full size, old or modern.
