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, which publishes on or about 2nd January 2019:
On the cover: An autumnal scene in Amsterdam on the museum tram line in the south of the city showing Amsterdam 464, built by Beijnes in 1929 as a trailer but converted to a motor car in 1935. A dark cloud hangs over the museumís future because part of the land on which it stands is wanted for city housing. David Hanger captured the pretty scene on 16 October 2016 at Bovenkirk (Amstelveen), the southern end of the running line.
