You will find all the usual features in this quarter’s edition with lots of new model information, several interesting letters we have received and answered, the “Observation Car’ with previews of the October 2016 edition, and columns by President, Rich Stoving and Noel Widdifield.

The articles begin with the second in the series, “Modeling 2nd Sections of the Century in Post WW II Era” by Dave Staplin. Dave continues this set of articles telling us everything there is to know about this section of the NYCS’s 20th Century Limited.

Keith Taylor tells us an interesting story about the origin of his “Live Steam Hudson” and provides some excellent photos of this interesting model. Alan Schofield from Great Briton writes about his NYCS layout and also includes some really great photos of some of his modeling of the Harmon “substation” or tower in USA language.

One of our previous authors continues his tale on his “NYC’s Weehawken Terminal – Part 2” and show us how he brought water to his Hudson River terminal. We will see again some of his excellent models of the NYC’s tugs, barges and assorted other watercraft.

NYCSHS Director, Dave Mackay, spins a tale about his efforts in “Developing a Model for the NYCSHS. You will also see many photos of towers found along the River Division near his home. Dave is an excellent modeler and shares the story of one of the first structure models developed exclusively for the NYCSHS.

Finally, Seth Lakin returns with another article for us. This one is not about his modeling but about an elusive piece of rolling stock that many NYCS models are not aware. Read about the “NYC’s Diesel Fuel Tank Cars” and see photos of these only 50 cars that the NYC owned.

You will also read about the results form the NYCSHS fourth “Modeling Survey” and hear about the new NYCSHS “Headquarters” and the “Flight of the Century” campaign that was kicked off this month.

  1. Suzanne Place wife of U.G. Place III says:

    About 10 years ago my husband (who came from 3 generations of Railroad men) was building a model layout for Oswego NY where he lived. In one of your magazines he found an article by a modeler from Oswego about the NY Central Business office in Oswego which had plans for building a replica. He started the building and did everything from scratch even down to a water fountain..unfortunately he suffered some health issues that left him blind in one eye …in the course of sorting his model train books we seem to have lost the article. He has built several pieces using lights & magnifying lenses & would love to finish the office building. Is there any chance that this article is still available for me to purchase for him? He just celebrated his 80th birthday and wants to finish as much of his NYC layout as possible…I would appreciate any help you might be able to give me. Thank you Suzanne Place email: suzip45@gmail.com or on facebook Suzie Acker Place
