A New Canadian Railfan Magazine
If you like Canadian trains, you'll like Railfan Canada.
The new magazine, edited by Suzanne Lemon and published by Morgan Turney, is produced four times a year by North Kildonan Publications.
For Turney, Railfan Canada is a dream come true.
"I've wanted to create a magazine like this for a long time," he says. "There are a lot of people in this country who like trains, and who also like to take pictures of trains. Railfan Canada has been created for them."
For Lemon, it's a chance to combine her love of trains and photography.
"Whether it's spending several hours in -30 Celsius temperatures or hiking through the bush to some inaccessible spot, I'm always in pursuit of that perfect shot of a train," she says.
A subscription to Railfan Canada, which comes out four times a year, is $30 (Cdn). Other items published by North Kildonan Publications include Canadian Railway Modeller, Canada's only model railway magazine, and other railway-related books, such as the Canadian Railway Heritage Guide.
