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: Derrick Yates shows us the modern tram system in Messina, Sicily, which is already 14 years old but has changed little in that time. Tram 06T, one of 15 Fiat 'Cityway' cars on the system, is seen passing the Neptune Fountain in Via Vittorio Emanuele II on 8 November 2016 on its way south from Annunziata to Gazzi in the city centre.
Simon Cole writes on a Portsmouth model tram running day held to mark the 80th anniversary of the city's tramway system closure.
