2nd Qtr. 2017 NYCentral Modeler


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 July and October 2017 editions, and columns by President, Rich Stoving and NYCentral Modeler Editor, Noel Widdifield.

The articles begin with Part 2 of the “Saranac Branch of the NYC – Early 1950s”, by David Gallaway. Australian, David continues with an update on his continuing to build his layout and he provides many photos of some of his well-done building models.

Keith Taylor returns for another article providing us with a look at “The New York Central S-Class in Tinplate Form”.  He provides an interesting history of the icon of the NYC – the S-class modeled in the early 1900s by several manufacturers.

“The Early Car Shop” by Kyle Coble covers the “Big Four 36′ Standard Boxcar (1897 – 1901)” in his return to the NYCentral Modeler for another great article on one of the CCC&StL boxcars providing interesting background, great photos and accurate drawings of the car.

Manuel Duran-Duran and Larry Faulkner present another of the ongoing series from the “NYC Engineering Department” and “The Harmon Files”.  In this issue they provide background and 3D printing of the NYC Coalboxes and Shop Signs and State Line Markers.

Returning author, Dan Howard, tells us about how he conducts prototypical operations on his New Haven and New York Central layout.  This is the first of a two-part series on his concept of operations and execution of realistic railroad operations on his layout.
