Ironically, my wife and I spent several days in various places in France in May,
and I went into several bookstores, never finding any model (or full size) train magazines anywhere.
I even found copies of the US magazine Model Railroader in the small stores in the Paris Nord station, but nothing French.
Heck, the Monoprix location near our hotel in Paris had all kinds of interesting magazines I never knew existed
(some really good military history ones, and I bought them all) but nothing for trains.
I was starting to think there weren't any French model train magazines!
