Engine Driver Preferences

Obviously those with Foxtel Cable TV get a larger choice of all things trains, but the free to air mob still have some watching they can do. There are even some on the PC you can follow. So based on today's date, here are the offerings, whch of course will change with time, but keep an eye out as there is always something to watch.

 

So lets see the Free to Air TV first:

The February edition of the Model Railroad Hobbyist Magazine is now available AND it's free!
