I visited Kalmbach Publishing in Waukesha, Wisconsin last year for my second time. I was there just to visit as I was in Milwaukee for the day. I didn’t get the whole tour on my first visit and Brian Schmidt was kind enough to show me around. I didn’t plan to photograph the whole tour of Kalmbach headquarters but I did end up with a small set of photos from the art on the walls, to the in house model railroads used by Model Railroader Magazine. Kalmbach is home to a large range of publications including American Snowmobiler, Art Jewelry, Astronomy, Bead&Button, Bead Style, Classic Toy Trains, Classic Trains, Discover, FineScale Modeler, Garden Railways, Model Railroader, Model Retailer, Scale Auto, and Trains. If you are ever in the area, you should check in and see if a tour is available.
