This will allow you to see the magazine in full resolution and also not require you to go back to the website to later view the magazine.

The NYCentral Modeler has been published since 2011
on a quarterly basis. You may now obtain all of those
editions on the NYCentral Modeler 2011- 2018 DVD.
The NYCentral Modeler was introduced in 2011 as a free to all, online digital publication dedicated to the modeling of the NYCS. It is published quarterly and represents some very fine modeling of the NYCS by both NYCSHS members and non-members. It represents some of the finest NYCS modeling today.
This DVD provides all of the editions published up through 2018 and will be the first in many of the NYCentral Modeler DVDs that will be offered in the future.
In the past these magazines were available on this website for downloading and viewing. We have removed all of the issues prior to this year and made those available on this DVD.
We will still publish each edition quarterly on this website and the current editions will remain available until we publish the next DVD.
This DVD makes all of the editions from 2011 through 2018 available on a single DVD for research and your reading pleasure.

and that is 20% off MSRP.
