 N GAUGE NOW: THE MAGAZINE was launched by Engee Publishing following the overwhelmingly positive response we received to the publication in November 2013 of the N GAUGE NOW Premier Issue, which was created as a 2014 "annual" aimed at all UK N gauge modellers.
 
Within weeks of publication, the Engee office was inundated with letters and emails from readers praising our efforts and demanding to know when the next issue would be out. As one reader wrote: "Please make it a regular publication - I don't want to wait a whole year for the next one!"
 
N GAUGE NOW: THE MAGAZINE is published four times a year.  
 
N GAUGE NOW: THE MAGAZINE is edited by HOWARD FOY, a professional journalist and and author of N GAUGE MODELLING: AN INTRODUCTORY GUIDE and other related N Gauge publications, and ROBIN GRUBBA, a leading N Gauge modeller for more than 20 years with articles published in MODEL RAIL and elsewhere.
