OK. I've added to the confusion, here. G Train had it right... "Australin Railway" was first issued Dec 1986 as a monthly, until Oct 1987. Volume 2 was bi-monthly from Feb 1988, in quite different hands, and only available by subscription. I know of only two issues in volume two.
"Rail Australia" was first issued in July, 1987, and ran for 23 issues until mid-1992.
The third magazine of the era was "Pacific Railway Magazine", first pblished in Dec 1990, surviving until June 1992, at least, by which time there were seven quarterly issues.
Were there other magazines in this era?
