Digital Railroad Model Craftsman Available
Railroad Model Craftsman has gone digital. They are offering a free preview of the digital version of the December issue; click here to see it.
Personally, I prefer paper. Then again, I'm older; I remember a time before computers.
Plus, my paper copy never shuts down and needs to be recovered, as happened when I browsed the December issue online. (Or wait for a page to load, for that matter.)
I also don't think this is great for advertisers. It's way too easy to click past the ad pages. You can do that in paper, too, but you might linger a little longer on an image or text. This is like having TV remote in your hands--get me to the articles!
But it is the way of the future; one day kids will say: "Tell me again how they used to print things on dead trees."
