In light of Government advice regarding the coronavirus outbreak, we took the difficult decision at the end of March to close our offices temporarily.

We also, reluctantly, took the decision to suspend publication of Today’s Railways UK and Today’s Railways Europe magazines. However, we are delighted to announce that production has now resumed: Issue 221 of Today’s Railways UK (July) and issue 293 of Today’s Railways Europe (July) are both now on sale.

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!
