The third issue of the NYCentral Modeler is available for download!
This issue has articles from several new writers and a couple authors who have contributed to the NYCentral Modeler in previous issues. All of the articles feature topics about the New York Central System. This issue includes the final half of the interview with Tony Koester, editor of Kalmbach’s annual Model Railroad Planning and contributing editor to Model Railroader.

We are pleased to feature articles by several authors bringing you topics including “New York Central’s West Side Freight Line” with modules by Ron Pasisi; Jim Six’s “Recreating the New York Central Michigan Division Circa 1955;” another NYC tower article by Larry Faulkner; “Kitbashing HO NYC Steam Locomotives by Tom Bailey; and all of the regular features of the magazine. This 61-page edition features many photos and the biographies of all of the authors. You will even see photos of some of our member’s layouts, important information about the Society, and more details on the 2012 NYCSHS Convention.

The issue includes the regular feature on NYCS models coming out currently and in the near future by associate editor Jim Benedict, who also writes a similar feature in the NYCSHS Central Headlight.

This edition promises to be a truly exciting third issue for what we hope to be a regular benefit to those of you who model the New York Central Railroad. Even if your layout is not a NYCS one, you will find items of interest for your own modeling. Our readers continue to provide us with very positive feedback on each issue. We believe that this issue continues the quality standard set by past issues. We hope to continue to receive positive feedback with this edition and also ask that you continue to send us interesting and outstanding articles in the future.

The NYCentral Modeler e-zine is for members of the NYCSHS and non-members who model in all scales. Check it out today and let us know what you think. Have a Happy New Year from all of us at the NYCSHS!

    to say many thanks for a remarkable post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at the minute
    but I have bookmarked it and also included your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a lot more, Please

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing problems with
    your blog. It appears as though some of the text within
    your content are running off the screen. Can someone else
    please comment and let me know if this is happening to
    them too? This might be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Cheers

    Can’t access the download site for the latest issue of Modeler… B (

    • All you need to do is go to the main page and then click on “Modeling Resources” and dropdown to “NYCentral Modeler”. Then follow the instructions by clicking on the Quarter “Q3”. The magazine will then download. Several hundred people have successfully downloaded it so we know it works.
      Thanks, NYCSHS
