Publications
Stourbridge Line User Group publishes a Newsletter for its members four times a year.

Up to Summer 2015, an A4 Newsletter was produced, but this has now been replaced by a quarterly A5 booklet titled “Platform”.

In addition, two on-line supplements are sent to members who register an email address -
a quarterly on-line general interest supplement named “Platform 2” and an occasional supplement named “Platform 3” which deals with specific subjects.

Use the arrows above to scroll through the thumbnails of front covers of every issue.  A large version of any front cover may be viewed by clicking on the thumbnail.

To give visitors to this website a feel for the type of articles published, issues of Platform, Platform 2 and Platform 3 more than a year old can be read by clicking on one of the photos below.

SLUG members may obtain on-line copies of any recent edition by emailing admin@stourbridgelineusergroup.info
