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: nfwiddifield@nycshs.org

Be sure to check out this latest edition.  We have some really informative articles for you!!

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.

NYC Modeler - CD-Cover

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.

    I guess I am lacking in “tech” skills as I cannot open issues of Modeler to review.
    System is not very “dumb user friendly”
