Hello David,

It was our Sales Officer, John Dennis, who set the system up.

It needed some specialised skills to set up and test.

Frank

Yes you can, but the quality will not equal that in the printed version of the magazine.

This is an interesting development. I have an on-line subscription to Model Railroader and it comes through a subscription service that when you downloaded is a locked set of 70odd PDF pages that are impossible to compile and save so in a sense I am getting much less than the paper copy because I cannot save it anywhere.

 

Is Light Railways going to be a simple single PDF file that is searchable and in PDF archival format?

 


It will be a simple single PDF file which is searchable and which you can save on your hard drive, iPad etc. The copies will be personalised with 'From the library of [your name]' at the foot of each page.

Interestingly, to renew and take up this PDF idea, you need to log on to the Lrrsa renewal page. At that point you need your membership number which (apparently) only comes with the printed version address/cover sheet. So before you change to PDF version, don't forget to keep/find your last magazine wrapper.

That is the case if you wish to renew an existing membership and change to the pdf option. And if you do not know your membership number I think it will work if you put '0' in that field!

But if you are not renewing, but starting a new subscription you should choose the "Join the LRRSA ..." option on this web page:

Re: Light Railways magazine as a downloadable pdf

That sounds like quite a good idea Frank.

Australian Standards PDFs have stupid restrictions on how many devices you can view them on etc. so I refuse to purchase them. The Model Railroader example sounds horrible as well.

Light Railways magazine now available as a downloadable pdf

Frank Stamford
 

The LRRSA now has a membership option which provides Light Railways magazine as a downloadable pdf.


Each time a new issue of the magazine is published you will receive an email message containing a link from where you can download your copy of the magazine. The size of the file is usually between 7 and 10 Mb. The same email will contain a copy of the Members News and any other documents included with the paper copy of the magazine.


The annual pdf subscription rate is $27.50 including GST, and it provides the full benefits of LRRSA membership, eg 25% discount on the price of books published by the LRRSA.


If you join the LRRSA now and take up the pdf option you can pay $32.10 for a 14 month membership which will provide seven copies of LR starting with the June 2015 issue.


For more information go to www.lrrsa.org.au and select the 'Join or Renew Online' menu option.

That's interesting. Are you able to describe where it went? I can only go on the Google maps aerial photo. Looks like fairly new housing development either side, so maybe the landscape is not able to be translated in current layout to where the line used to go.
