NKPHTS

The Nickel Plate Road Historical & Technical Society


Prior to being called NKProducts, this department in the magazine was called Modeler's Notebook. Issues listed are based on author's collection and may not be complete. Also, not all issues had product reviews.

The reviews and comments represent the opinions of the individual reviewers and do not necessarily reflect the position of the Nickel Plate Road Historical & Technical Society or its Board of Trustees. These reviews are presented solely for the information of our members, and no payment has been made to the Society for the inclusion of the reviews herein.

Members are invited to submit reviews of Nickel Plate related books, videos, models, and other products.

You may order back issues. Visit our Company Store Page here. If back issues are sold out, Members may place a free classified "want" ad in the Interchange Point through John Slater at NKPHTS433L@aol.com.
