Each edition contains five to seven articles covering different scales of NYCS modeling, a section reviewing all new NYCS models being offered by manufacturers for the quarter, letters and emails from members and readers, the latest news on models being offered by the NYCSHS at 20% discounts, and a variety of other information about modeling and happenings at the NYCSHS.
The magazine is free, and all you need to do to read or download it is go to the NYCSHS website. To do that, go to www.NYCSHS.org. Then put your curser on the “Modeling Resources” button and drop down to the “NYCentral Modeler” tab. Then just follow the instruction on the page. ENJOY!!
2nd Qtr. 2022 Edition
Publishing this magazine continues to be a major challenge each quarter as I receive very few articles for publication. I spend as much time trying to find modelers to write articles as I do focused on the publishing of the magazine. In our recent NYCSHS Modelers Survey, we received over 600 responses to the survey indicating that the respondents modeled the NYCS. If you model the NYC, please contact me to let me help you display your modeling to the rest of the readers. Writing an article is not very hard and we can help you do it. Without article contributions, we cannot publish the magazine. We really need your help with this, if you enjoy reading the NYCentral Modeler each quarter. Take a couple of minutes and send me an email and let us help you display your modeling or collecting talent to our readers. Contact me at: email@example.com
Be sure to check out this latest edition. We have some really informative articles for you!!

Enjoy our FREE NYCentral Modeler Magazine
Please enjoy our free quarterly magazine, NYC Modeler. Developed and edited by members and friends of the New York Central System Historical Society, we are providing this free resource for anyone interested in creating accurate models of New York Central railroad equipment and structures. The magazine is only available as a PDF file, and you will need the free Acrobat Reader software to view it.
To view please right click on the issue you want to view below and then use the “Save Link As” feature to download the NYCentral Modeler to your desktop. 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. Just opening it with your browser will not provide the photos in the high quality that we have put into them.
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.
The MSPR is $36.95 and the NYCSHS members price is $29.56
and that is 20% off MSRP.
Shipping is free for US customers but Ohio residents must pay 8% Ohio sales tax.
Non-US customers will pay actual cost of shipping.
