''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''.A brief history of Railway Gazette
