RPG Quarterly Journal
Railway Philately

What goes in, and when does it come out?

Railway Philately, the quarterly Jounal of the Railway Philatelic Group, is issued four times a year (December, March, June and September). Our aim is to cover all areas of RPG interest adequately over a period of time.

Members (and even non-members) can submit articles for publication in the Journal, subject the Editor’s judgement on what to include in each issue. If you collect or study a particular area of RPG interest, why not think about sending in an article?

Railway Philately has been running for over 50 years now, and over the next few months we hope to post a sample copy on the page from each decade.

An Index of all articles in all issues of Railway Philately is being prepared, but will take some time. The first step in this task is to create a Table of Contents for each issue – which will also take a considerable time. The Table of Contents so far covers Volumes 1 to 10 (the first 10 years of Railway Philately). If you want to see how work is progressing …
