The New Zealand Railways Magazine, Volume 6, Issue 5 (November 2, 1931)
A Tribute To The Magazine
A Tribute To The Magazine.
It was a forward movement on the part of the Railway Department to issue a Magazine dealing with railways throughout the world, but primarily for the purpose of bringing under the notice of the general public the facilities offered by the Dominion system, and the innumerable historic and scenic places that, through the operation of the system were, as it were, brought within the orbit of every unit of the population. From the outset the Magazine has been ably controlled; the scope of the interests dealt with has been wide; the articles have been illuminative and informative to a degree; the choice of matter and the handling of the material left absolutely nothing to be desired, and all associated with the preparation and publication of the magazine are deserving of very hearty congratulations. The June-July number, now to hand, is worthy of its predecessors, all of which were issues of sterling excellence. Naturally the current issue deals with the new Board which is a matter of national interest, and the photographs of the appointees and their biographical sketches will not be without interest to citizens throughout the Dominion. As usual, the illustrations are not only judiciously chosen, but excellently produced whilst the printing, and indeed everything in connection with the Magazine, is of the highest class of workmanship.—From the Timaru Post.page 22
