The New Zealand Railways Magazine, Volume 7, Issue 7 (December 1, 1932)

“A Valuable and Interesting — Publication.”

“A Valuable and Interesting

The following interesting reference to the New Zealand Railways Magazine appeared in the October issue of the New Zealand Traveller:

“The decision to continue the publication of The New Zealand Railways Magazine will be acclaimed with gratification by all readers of that brightly and interestingly-written periodical. It is not overstating things to say that its readers are appreciators of it and look forward to its appearance, month by month, with keen anticipatory pleasure….

“The railways are New Zealand's biggest industry under one control, and one in which every New Zealander is—or ought to be —intensely interested, and whatever loss may be involved in the production of the magazine is trifling compared with the interests involved and with the capital sunk in it. It is remarkable how wide is the appeal that the magazine makes. It is of the highest value as a means of making known to every member of the staff the ideas underlying the policy of the management, a matter that is almost of equal interest to the general reader. The technical side is not neglected, and, in addition, each issue contains articles of interest to those who are not railwaymen. From the informative and topical editorials to the news articles telling of transport developments in other lands, and from the regular features to the artistically produced illustrations, every page of the magazine is bright and interesting, and to none more so than to commercial travellers.”
