The NASG Dispatch

The Dispatch is the bi-monthly magazine of the NASG published in January, March, May, July, September, and November of each year. Each issue is full of information on various aspects of S-scale (1:64) model railroading, including topics such as standard-gauge modeling, narrow-gauge modeling, hi-rail modeling, and American Flyer collecting and operating. The Dispatch is included as part of your NASG membership.

Each issue contains over 30 pages with color photos, professional-quality track plan designs, editorials, how-to modeling articles, layout feature articles, and several regular columns. Printed on high-quality paper. Pictured on the right is the current issue.

Most of the recent electronic PDF issues include supplemental bonus pages that are not available in the print version due to the extra printing cost of those pages.

For NASG members whom have also signed up for access to the "Members Only" section of this web site, the PDF of the new issue will be available as soon as the webmaster has received it from the editor.
