Where to find the Trains News Wire

Published: April 17, 2006
Yes, the Trains News Wire is still available on TrainsMag.com. TrainsMag.com... that's probably the best place to start.

You see, the direct Web site address for Trains magazine is TrainsMag.com, not Trains.com. We know, it's a little confusing, but the Trains.com domain is more of a landing page for all five of our railroading-related magazines. If you're only interested in Trains magazine features on the site, please go directly to TrainsMag.com.
If you land on the Trains.com home page and want to get to the Trains magazine portion of the site, simply click the Trains magazine logo in the upper navigation bar, as shown to the right (click the image for a larger image).
Where to find the Trains News Wire

Once you're on the Trains magazine "home page" (TrainsMag.com), the News Wire can be found in two places.
Latest headlines:

On the TrainsMag.com home page you'll notice a box for the News Wire that allows you to scroll through the latest headlines. Click on the image to the right for example. Simply click on any of the headlines to be taken directly to that story.

All News Wire headlines:

To see the all of the recent News Wire headlines, click the tab in our red navigation bar that reads "TRAINS NEWS WIRE" (as shown to the right).

New format

You'll notice that the new Trains News Wire features each news story within its own story (as opposed to one story for all of one day's stories, as our old site featured). There are two reasons behind this change. First, by offering each story within its own page, we can showcase the latest stories on the TrainsMag.com home page (as mentioned above). You can now quickly scroll through the headlines to see if there's anything of interest to you.

The second reason for the change to individual stories is that it provides us greater flexibility for offering expanded functionality in the future. For example, in the near future we're planning on classifying all the News Wire stories into six (or more) categories. In addition to scanning all of the News Wire stories, you'll be able to select a category that's of specific interest and search by only that category (for example, Preservation, Amtrak, etc.).

I was suprised to see the Union Pacific rotary on the front cover of this month Trains. My dad work in the Omana shop during the 70's and was the boiler forman there, he and his crew build the plow in 1971. I have picture of him and his crew along side the rotory 900082. It nice to know that the plow is still running. Thank you for a very good magazine.
