Trackside Model Railroading is the magazine for model railroad enthusiasts who want an in-depth view of layouts. We cover two layouts each month, including all fine scales. Our railfanning style includes video of the trains running on the layouts as well as an article and many photographs of each layout we share.


Monthly Blu-ray or DVD Subscription

We now offer a subscription to our monthly DVDs, which feature the same layouts we share in the magazine each month but with more content. The videos are usually 80-120 minutes and have much more video of the layouts and often bonus features and stories that are not in the magazine.

Trackside Model Railroading's Current Issue

Layouts featured in this month's magazine:

Intermodal History and a Railroader's Perspective
This feature explores intermodal transportation with prototype photos and images of intermodal facilities as modeled on several layouts. You'll learn a bit about Malcolm McLean, the father of intermodal transportation. Also in this feature, modeler Mike McGinley, who worked for the Southern Pacific during the years of major changes in intermodal, shares his perspective of that time period.

Best of Narrow Gauge Series
Enjoy photos and video of some of the best narrow gauge layouts we have featured: Bruce Hanley's Washo & Wind Gapp in S, Dave Clune's Cascade County Narrow Gauge in O, and Russ Segner's Coal Creek Lumber Company in S scale.

Build an Easy, Mess-Free Intermodal Yard
In this first part of a two-part project, we show you how to build a concrete intermodal yard. In an upcoming issue, we will add details and weathering.
