Would any of you recomment a good magazine for HO scale? What kind of stuff would it include?

I'm curently subscribed to a "traditional RR magazine", which includes news, stories/articles, consist descriptions, roster updates, etc, etc. But what kind of stuff is published in model RR magazines?:D


Long Winded Old Fart
Model Railroader.
Railroad Model Craftsman.
Railroad Modeler.

If you want a good magazine for mainlines. Mainline railroader or just "mainline"
Mags for pics of railroads to copy.
You can look all of these up on the enternet.

I'll add if you want to do a Canadian prototype thing this one is excellent. It's where I got the info for doing my C630's.
