Here's the short on digital magazine subscriptions from Klambach -- DO NOT SUBSCRIBE TO ANY OF THEIR MAGS!!!

Why? Simple, first, you are strictly limited to viewing the magazine *only* on the Kindle, iPhone or iPad. You cannot even view it on your computer like you can with nearly all other magazine publishers. This was a decision by Kalmbach not Amazon. Second, the price is high for a digital product! Wasn't digital content supposed to be easier to develop and publish? Last, many magazine publishers have realistic view on the future of printing and have begun to offer subscription packages that include both the printed version as well as the digital one. As of now (2012-09-07) Kalmbach has chosen to not offer this type of subscription - maybe it will change but I doubt it!

Please note that I have been a print subscriber of 'Model Railroader', 'Trains' and others from Kalmbach for over thirty (30) years. I did not reach my opinion lightly. Frankly I love my printed magazines and thought that a digital copy would be way to bring my magazine rack with me wherever I go. Sadly that didn't work out.

Therefore, my suggestion is if you want 'Model Railroader', 'Trains', 'Fine Scale Modeler' or others in their selection, opt for the printed copy - you'll be glad you did.

Trains
Model Railroader
FineScale Modeler

Amazon does not make clear that this magazine cannot be viewed on the PC App. Even though the decision to do this is within the control of the publisher, Amazon has a responsibility to state this limitation before purchase. This magazine has detailed maps and graphics that can't be reasonably viewed on a small screen device. So if you have a tablet or kindle, the subscription might work for you, but if you have just an android phone, good luck.

I have been reading the print edition of Trains for many years. The publication is great. Kindle has done an excellent job of making this edition electronically. The photographs are sharply rendered. Navigation is superior to other electronic editions. You do not have move or enlarge the page in order to read or navigate, but turn them as you go. Good Job, Kindle. I would make past issues available, not just the current one. Again, I say excellent job.

This is a beautiful magazine filled with pages of wonderful photos of wilderness and trains. The Alaska Ice Rail issue is amazing. The Amazon Kindle Newsstand is starved of magazines with wilderness and outdoor magazines, but this one is available, which is great. There is a lot of densely packed information about trains: news, history and technology. All of which is very interesting and well put together. It looks pretty great on my Kindle Fire.

I never subscribed to this. It just appeared on my Kindle and then it tried to charge the credit card I had on file with amazon so I deleted all my payment information on Amazon and I think I un-subscribed to this I hope I did anyway. Couldn't contact Amazon about it. I'm very disappointed in Amazon with this.

Trains (the magazine) is always a MUST for railfans. The KIndle Fire version is superb! (My previous digital subscription to Trains was through Zinio, which might have earned a single star rating.) My only reason for not offering the fifth star is that, because I subscribed through a "third party vendor" I must log on to the Trains website each month with a new password in order to access their wonderful supplemental offerings. Reading Trains on my Kindle Fire is a wonderful experience.

I love this magazine and had subscribed to it years ago. I also love trains and used to 'chase' them and photograph them. Rode them a lot when I was younger. In the 1960's, the company I worked for transferred me to mid-Missouri (Moberly) My wife, son and I traveled back home on weekends, usually taking the train.
