The magazine specialises in, as the title says, narrow gauge and short-line railroads from both a prototype and modeling perspective. The vast majority of articles are on North American subjects, but the magazine regularly publishes articles with a more international perspective, especially on modeling matters.

On January 10, 2017, White River Productions announced their acquisition of the magazine title from Benchmark Publications. Bob Brown remains as editor. [4]
