What a freakin' drag! I suppose that no paper publication can compete with "free access" internet sites, no matter how much "fake info" comes with the deal. I will need to visit the LHS for my last Timber Times, that was just about the ONLY thing I bought there anyway.
Bless the folks who published it and I wish them well.

Sad, but hardly surprising.
I never saw much interest in logging lines among the hobby in general. Heck, I live close to what was the last company-owned logging line in the US and loved reading about them, but I never bought a single copy of this magazine. I thumbed through many of them over the years at the two hobby shops I know if that carried them, but I never saw any issue that made me think, "Man, I've got to get this."

I am (was?) a subscriber.

Great, detailed articles about some pretty obscure (but interesting) things.

It covered equipment, people, life & living, and so much more...

I'll miss it, but I'm a geek for that level of information and detail surrounding logging and logging history.

TT was never designed as a model magazine..it was a history/nostalgic  type and darn useful for logging modellers research with a bit of modelling thrown in from time to time..Heck even the old advert photos were useful research for scratch modelling !...

This is the eventual fate of all historical publications. You just will run out of fresh material.
