At the weekend I finally secured  the final item in a collection that I have been building for a while.
Its taken many evenings checking Trademe, buying small collections just for 1 or 2 items, and passing the unwanted on to others.

So, what have I got?
A complete collection of Railfan magazines. 20 years of railway history, both old and modern.

38cm high, which does lead to a bit of a storage problem, if one requires quick access to any article, for which I will have to develop an index of some sort. No doubt the editors will now release series collection books (which i think would be a great idea. The collected branch line articles would be brilliant).

Can anyone point me at a set of plain magazine binders?

John Agnew's series on NZ passenger carriages would be very valuable reprinted into a book.

It has been a major effort for John Agnew to put these articles together, and I doubt that a book will result unless NZ Railfan sponsors it.
Maybe the carriage articles could be cut out and rebound.....

Some Railfans are no longer available as back orders so I doubt they will be released as a collection either.
