Magazines For Immediate Release

January 10, 2017White River Productions is pleased to announce it has acquired the Narrow Gauge & Short LineGazette magazine from Benchmark Publications. Kevin and Nadean EuDaly, owners of WhiteRiver Productions, express their excitement on continuing the Gazette's legacy into the future.The Gazette is a great magazine to add to our line of prototype and modeling publications, Kevin said.

Bob Brown, editor of the Gazette for over 40 years, said Irene and I are now in our mid-80s andare concerned about the magazines future. We are both healthy, and still want to produce theGazette. We also owe magazines to a lot of subscribers, and we want to see the Gazette continue,so WRP was the logical choice. Bob will continue to edit the magazine, so there should be littledifference in the Gazette going forward. Irene Brown, Benchmark Publications businessmanager, plans to gradually retire after some 35 years of day-to-day running the magazine, butwill continue to proofread as needed.
As far as the magazine itself is concerned, readers will still be able to enjoy Bobs take on thehobby, read the regular columnists like Charlie Getz, Jim Vail, Mallory Hope Ferrell, CraigSymington, and Steve Harris, and build from the scale drawings produced by Gary Caviglia,David Fletcher, John Midgley, Neil Pfafman, and Robert Stears.

With Bob Brown getting on in years it is nice to see that the Gazette will continue under goodmanagement.
