Railway Digest is a monthly magazine covering the railways of New South Wales, and in more recent times, the railways all over Australia.


It is published by the Australian Railway Historical Society, NSW Division. The first issue was published in March 1963 under the name New South Wales Digest and regular publication commenced with the May 1963 edition. The name changed in 1983.

It has evolved from an enthusiast magazine edited and produced by volunteers, using a hand operated duplicator in the home of one of its members, to a professional full colour production directed to the wider community and commercially distributed to newsagents throughout Australia.[1]

The magazine is mainly a news magazine, with some feature articles. The other six state and territory divisions of that Society publish their own news magazine, while Australian Railway History is the national magazine for well-researched historical features.
