Railway Gazette International is a monthly business journal covering
the railway, metro, light rail and tram industries worldwide.
Available by annual subscription, the magazine is read in over 140
countries by transport professionals and decision makers, railway
managers, engineers, consultants and suppliers to the rail
industry. A mix of technical, commercial and geographical feature
articles, plus the regular monthly news pages, cover developments in
all aspects of the rail industry, including infrastructure,
operations, rolling stock and signalling.
Railway Gazette International traces its history to May 1835 as The
Railway Magazine, when it was founded by Effingham Wilson. The
Railway Gazette title dates from July 1905, created to cover railway
commercial and financial affairs. In April 1914 it merged with The
Railway Times, which incorporated Herapath's
Railway Journal, and in
February 1935 it absorbed the
Railway Engineer. Around this time it
also absorbed The
Railway News. It then reflected all aspects of
railway activity, particularly in the
British Empire and in other
areas of the world which used similar technology.
In January 1964, it merged with sister publication Diesel Railway
Traction and its frequency reduced from weekly to fortnightly.
In October 1970, it was renamed
Railway Gazette International and
reduced in frequency to monthly.
Railway Gazette International is part of the
Railway Gazette Group,
itself part of DVV Media Group. It was part of Reed Business
Information until 1 April 2007.
