    Craig, what year did you get. I can only see up to 2020.

    No 2021 advertised yet?

      For what it's worth I sent an inquiry to the publisher yesterday about if or when we could see the 2021 On30 Annual. I've not heard anything back yet but I'll pass along anything I find out.

      They usually had a pre-sale in December and the first copes went out in mid to late March. I wonder if they've discontinued it? Let's hope not.

        Heard from WhiteRiver this morning. They said the On30 Annual will go in sale in March.

          I submitted an article this go around like I often do, but hadn't heard back on anything recently. I don't like bugging editors but I might write to ask what the status is, as I usually get a pre-print PDF to rev for errors...

            In the past they would run a special offer for a few bucks off the cover price and free shipping and this offer usually was on their web site in November/December. This year I haven't seen a thing about it. I wonder what their thoughts are regarding that. I don't want this thread to go off track about the future of On30 etc but I really look forward to each issue.

              Yeah, I agree with you fully there. It's not just White River, though. I had a debacle with MR's Great Model Railroads annual two years ago, .everyone had it retail before I got mine.

              As I've written for the Annual the past few years, I get a single copy each time and those show up in a decent timeframe.

              But yeah, ePay seems to be the fastest way to get the annual otherwise.

                I don't mind waiting an extra few days, especially if all my funds go to those responsible. I just ordered mine from White River a few minutes ago, $22 with free shipping.

                  Just ordered mine direct from WRP. They have a small notice on the order page about it not yet being in stock. It's probably still at the printer but at least I have mine ordered and saved about 8 bucks.

                    Just look up the 2021 Annuals page and you can order from there. No shipping and a couple of dollars less. Ordering from them is better than a 70 mile RT drive.

                      I have today, 5 March, ordered my 2021 Annual from WRP. I have every year's edition since the first one was published.

                      The COVID issue last year caused a delay in my receipt of the 2020 Annual which was lost in transit. WRP sent a replacement at no extra cost thanks to WRP. A lot of my mail from overseas was very slow arriving as there were many fewer flights around the world be cause of COVID causing international travel to almost completely shut down.

                      Best Regards

                        Got mine ordered too, couple bucks off and free shipping. Works for me!

                          I got back into the hobby and into On30 around 2013, so I started buying it then and later bought the back issues when I found them. Even the first issues have a lot of info that is useful today.

                          Only once my layout started looking like a layout did I ponder getting my stuff into the Annual and I've tried to have something in each one since 2017...

                            I just confirmed today that it's still being built right now by the editor (and that my article is going to be in it). Don't expect it to be in your mailbox very soon.

                              I wait and find issues at shows. I have found them for as little as $1
