MODEL RAILROAD NEWS RETURNS TO PRINT! (Kansas City, January 28, 2012) – White River Productions has added Model Railroad News to the company’s family of publications. The agreement between LampLight Publications and White River Productions was completed Friday, January 27th. This development will return Model Railroad News to the hobby market after a short absence. Model Railroad News’ most recent issue was October, 2011. A combined Jan/Feb, 2012 will arrive in in the coming weeks. This combined issue was in production, when Model Railroad News ceased publication in December, 2011. The first new edition of Model Railroad News from White River Productions is planned for March, 2012. The resumption of monthly publication will begin with the March edition. “We are pleased to be able to welcome Model Railroad News to White River Productions,” said Kevin EuDaly, owner of White River Productions. “This magazine has been an important voice in the hobby and White River looks forward to continuing its high standards and quality for readers and manufacturers.” Tony Cook will serve as editor for White River Productions. “I’m thrilled to continue being part of this important publication and will turbo-charge my efforts to make it a satisfying opportunity for model railroad enthusiasts to make the most of their leisure time pursuits,” said Tony Cook. Mr. Cook is a lifelong model railroader and has been part of the magazine’s team since May of last year. “I look forward to working with our existing staff of very talented and knowledgeable writers to deliver what our readers and industry has come to expect in the pages of Model Railroad News.” Subscribers will be pleased to know existing subscriptions are to be honored by the new ownership. Fulfillment will be based on the number of remaining issues in existing subscriptions and will not be based on calendar months. The magazine’s website (www.modelrailroadnews.com) is under a revamping and will be back online in the very near future.
