3rd Quarter 2014 Central Headlight is in the mail.

3rd Quarter 2014 Central Headlight is in the mail today.

Cover3rd2014Headlight

Readers of Central Headlight have been asking for more color, and with this issue they will have it.  Color was provided on 29 of the issue’s 40 pages, resulting in three major features in full color:  a review of New York Central’s Operating Management Training Program, a discussion of the NYC passenger cars that were sold to Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus, and an up-close look at a magnificent live-steam model of S-1b Niagara 6019.  Readers will also enjoy a photo story about an avalanche of coal that blocked all four tracks of Central’s busy main line at Fonda, New York in 1947.  Other articles recall the operation of Train No. 43, recall an event during the infamous coal strike of 1950, and take a close look at NYC’s Lot 858-B boxcars.  Finally, for laughs, there’s the story of a cat who hopped a freight on the Auburn & Rochester Railroad way back in 1848 – with an unintended consequence!

As a reminder, those who have added the digital subscription to their membership renewal will have this issue in their computer today.  For only $15 extra per year you can also have your copy digitally sent to you on the day the printed copy goes in the mail.  With this option you have the ability to read the issue ahead of most members and still have the printed copy a few days later.  Many members have taken advantage of this and have given us very favorable feedback on the option.  You might think about adding this option to your membership when you renew for 2015 this fall.

The 3rd Quarter 2014 NYCentral Modeler is Here!

For The Modeler

Your Third Quarter 2014 NYCentral Modeler is Here

IMG_0287-compressedOne of Barry Clements “Dry Bulk” trailers being loaded by another of his models in HO-scale. Just one of the many photos found in the articles in this quarter’s NYCentral Modeler. (Photo by Barry Clements)

The latest issue of the NYCentral Modeler provides an article by O-scale modeler, Bob Shaw, on building an O-scale New York Central Railroad like railroad. His article is the first in a series that will take us from Bob’s ideas about what his thoughts have been about designing the layout to the benchwork for the layout. In future issues we will follow Bob’s progress as he builds his NYC layout.

The second article provides us with some more information about the latest modeling technique, 3-D printing, as Barry Clements shows us his “Dry Bulk” trailers and other models. Barry was inspired to contact us by Kyle Coble’s article on 3-D printing in the 4th Quarter 2013, NYCentral Modeler.

Of course, the magazine contains the regular features, “The NYC Engineering Department” and “The Harlem Files” that feature another drawing from the NYCSHS collection of building drawings. This month we take a look a the Standard Switch and Flag Cabin and learn how to assemble a kit of the model.

“Building my NYC DFA/B in HO-scale – Part 2” takes us back to the end of Rick DeCandido’s article from the last issue and continues to show us how Rick kitbashed this model.

Pete LaCuardia returns with another short article about constructing a “Point and Go Tortoise Control” system for the turnouts on his layout.

And finally, Ron Parisi continues his series on the “History of the NYCRR’s West Side Freight Lines – Part 2”. Ron’s series on the NYCRR in the New York City area has been a very popular series with many of our readers. This one is no exception as it takes us along the New York Central in the city.

You will also find a good guide to using the NYCSHS Website, with links to many of the special features found on our site.

The issue contains the regular features of “From the Cab,” “Extra Board,” “What’s New,” “NYCSHS RPO,” and “The Observation Car”.

Don’t miss an exciting minute of reading pleasure. Click here to begin reading this issue of the NYCentral Modeler.
