  1. Why is the “photo of the day” the same all week long, just like last week? I am not impressed with the “new” website at all, along with the downward spiral of the quality and content of both magazines. I used to look forward to receiving them in the mail, but those days are gone. I doubt if this three-decade subscriber is going to renew both Trains and Classic Trains. They are not worth what I pay for them. Wake up Kalmbach!

  2. Once again, as noted above, you launch a “new” website for Classic Trains and promote “Photo of the Day” on the main webpage–only it turns out to be the Photo of the Week, or longer– it can’t be that difficult to figure out that a lot of long -time readers look at that section frequently–and this goof-up after re-arranging Lake Erie & Lake Ontario in the last issue–good grief….

  3. I absolutely agree with the comments of Donald Guthals and have already
    decided to drop Trains Mag soon. I know that change is always problematic
    but in this case it seems to be a distaster.

  4. I Am a subscriber to CT trying to see the story below the picture of the MILW motor train. Your system won’t let me see the story. What is going on?

  5. On the fifth try, I finally got through. Sorry to bother. The motor train from Davenport, Iowa to Kansas City ran past out house during the WWII and for some years after. It and the bay window cabooses made this pre schooler a CMStP&P fan for life. Glad to see the picture of one of them, just as I remember!

  6. I am a full subscriber to both CT and T magazines – why are my views of the website(s) being limited? I will NOT be coerced into joining a “new” website that I do not wish to subscribe to!

  7. How can I get $19.95 Price Adjustment I received in the mail on this website for 1-year subscription? I am a former subscriber.

  8. This “new” site or merger of all your rags reminds me of the UP and SP merger, a mess. I subscribe to Trains and CT and want to be able to read articles without being limited. You keep reducing your print and moving more to digital. Needs to be reversed or I will not be renewing.

  9. Your company has been very good about getting my address straight so I can see the digital copies of when I have been a subscriber for Trains and Model Railroad. Now I hope you can help me with my Classic Trains subscription?
