In light of Government advice regarding the coronavirus outbreak, we took the difficult decision at the end of March to suspend publication of Today’s Railways UK and Today’s Railways Europe magazines. However, we are delighted to confirm that production resumed with the July-dated issues.

We appreciate that this has been and still is a difficult time for everyone and we would like to thank all our customers for their continued support for Today's Railways and Platform 5 Publishing.

Keep safe!
