This site is designed to share information about the magazine Railway Wonders of the World.


Published by the Amalgamated Press, Railway Wonders of the World appeared in 50 weekly instalments from 1st February 1935 through to 10th January 1936. A vast range of subjects was covered.


The complete work was designed to be bound in two hardback volumes which are still readily available.


Others chose to retain the weekly parts with their attractive colour covers.  


Today the weekly parts are more difficult to obtain but do appear from time to time.
