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: For a limited period a few years ago, Gateshead & District tram 10 of 1925 was repainted in British Railways green to represent the period from 1951 to 1961 when this tram (and 18 others) was in service on the BR Grimsby and Immingham line. Derrick Yates captured it running at Beamish on 7 April 2013. After its current overhaul, it will be returned to its original Gateshead livery.
