Bob Brown has sold the Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette to White River (publishers of Railroad Model Craftsman)
Bob Brown, editor of the Gazette for over 40 years, said "Irene and I are now in our mid-80s and are concerned about the magazine's future. We are both healthy, and still want to produce the Gazette. 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 little difference in the Gazette going forward. Irene Brown, Benchmark Publications' business manager, plans to gradually retire after some 35 years of day-to-day running the magazine, but will continue to proofread as needed.
