For nearly a quarter century Model Railroad News has been a go-to source for the latest hobby news and product reviews. Long-time contributor David Otte now serves the publication as Associate Editor. In addition to David’s informative and in-depth product reviews, he now joins Editor Tony Cook in planning and management of the magazine’s content. Tony Lucio, currently co-editor of White River’s HO Collector quarterly, now serves as MRN’s Contributing Editor. At 21 years old, Shane T. Mason becomes one of the youngest individuals to serve on the staff of a monthly model railroad publication as Assistant Editor. Shane’s work has appeared in the pages of MRN during the past two years, and his knowledge of electronics and interest in N scale will enhance news and review coverage going forward for the magazine. “These changes will help keep Model Railroad News on target for its mission of supplying the latest news and the best reviews as the publication begins its celebration of 25 years in the hobby,” said Editor Tony Cook.
