The programme of the VGB Verlagsgruppe Bahn GmbH publishing group includes the traditional journals “MIBA“ (miniature railways), “Modelleisenbahner“ (model railroader) and “Eisenbahn Journal“ (rail journal) as well as the trade journal “Züge” (trains) and the “ER-Video-Express” (a magazine and DVD package). New in our programme are the journals “Digitale Modellbahn“ (digital model railway) and “BAHNEpoche“ (railway epoch). The publishing group currently covers over 500 available titles, and around 100 titles are added each year, among them the popular RioGrande DVD series. Verlagsgruppe Bahn is the European market leader in the segment of rail journals. In addition, we care for the spectator club members of the well-known “Eisenbahn-Romantik” cult show broadcast on SWR. According to Horst Wehner, Managing Director of Verlagsgruppe Bahn, “we think the idea of a vacation road through Saxony with narrow gauge steam trains running along the route is great.
Therefore it is a pleasure for us to support the Saxon Steam Railway Route as an exclusive media partner. And in our wide range of literature and other products, railway enthusiasts will find exactly what they are looking for. Even we still enjoy going on excursions to explore the land of steam railways.” Horst Wehner is also looking forward to the presentation of the Golden Rail Award at the eventLOKation Historischer Güterboden (historic goods shed) in Radebeul in summer 2012. Like the years before, the best railway models in each category – chosen by readers of VGB journals – will be awarded in the proper style of the event location. A highlight will be a special excursion on a train of the Saxon Lößnitzgrund narrow gauge railway through the Lößnitzgrund valley.
