The cover photo for this quarter’s edition is from Jim Kehn’s “Modeling a Generic Big Four Tower” and the article is the first of a two-part series sharing Jim’s excellent modeling skills. For us Big Four fans it is a very informative article. Dick Craig tells his story of a “Good Outcome for a Treasured Layout” about giving away his O-gauge layout upon moving from his home. Continuing his series on O-gauge modeling, Bob Shaw tells us about “Making 3 Custom Dwarf Signals.” “The Early Car Shop” editor, Kyle Coble shares his tale of how to “Scratch Build a Big Four Furniture Car.” Ed Enyedy gives us a glimpse of his layout that will be open for viewing at the 2018 NYCSHS Convention in “Modeling the Collinwood Powerhouse in HO-Scale.” Returning author, Tom Long’s article presents “Modeling a B&A RPO.” Prolific modeler, Seth Lakin, continues his series with “NYC SW-1 Switchers – Part 2.. And you also get all of the regular features with “NYCSHS RPO,” “Extra Board,” “What’s New,” and “The Observation Car.” All in the April 1, 2018 edition.
