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: This features Peter Davies' picture of his 7¼ in. gauge 'ride-in' tram on his garden railway and tramway.

Geoff Price looks back 60 years to the last day of Liverpool's trams on 14 September 1957. He was there so gives us an eye-witness account.
100 years ago, on the night of 6-7 August 1917, all the trams in Dartford (Kent) were destroyed in a depot fire. Bob Appleton relates the sad tale and its aftermath, but also revisits the scene to see what's there today.
The Model Tram News section tells us of some new toastrack kit models and of double-deckers from Warrington and Wallasey, all in 00 scale. Other delights include 3D tram body prints and HO/00 scale grooved tram rail.
A wide-ranging letters section adds to this issue as does a short piece on the 65th anniversary of the saving of London Transport HR/2 tram 1858 by Peter Davis - our TLRS Vice-President. The tram is now a regular runner at the East Anglia Transport Museum.
