Railroad Model Craftsman Magazine - Carstens Publishing

It appears that Railroad Model Craftsman magazine is no more.......

A quote from Henry R. Carstens, President, Carstens Publications, Inc.....

Quote:
It is with regret that Carstens Publicatons, Inc. will be closing permanently at close of business on Friday, August 22, 2014. Carstens Publications, Inc. has been a leading publisher of leading hobby magazines for over 50 years. Unfortunately the current economic climate has placed us in this position. Discussion is continuing with several parties who expressed desire to take on the continuance of the magazines. At this point there is still hope that all three titles will remain in existence. But I can offer no guarantees. We thank you for your patronage over the years, and wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.

--Henry R. Carstens, President
Carstens Publications, Inc.
The web-site is still up for now....they do more than just railroading, but if they are closing permanently, all is lost.....

Update!

I just saw the November/December 2014 issue of Railway Model Craftsman magazine at my lcoal train store. It appears that they are continuing under a new publisher, White River Productions. Flipping through it, it looks very well done, a few improvements even.

So they are not dead yet, just re-born, in fact, or so it seems.......
