Hal Miller, Editor
Hal Miller enjoys railroading in full-size and model varieties, and on two or three rails.
He traces his tenure at Kalmbach Media back to Trains Magazine. A stint at our former trade publication, Model Retailer, helped foster relationships with manufacturers in the hobby industry and allowed him to experience a variety of model railroading scales.
Most recently he’s been the editor of Model Railroader. He is also currently editor of Classic Toy Trains.
When not chasing trains or model railroading, he’s usually working on vintage vacuum-tube amplifiers or helping to rescue dogs with his family.
