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:
