JULY/AUGUST 2020: The July/August Narrow Gauge and Short Line Gazette not only features Gary’s layout, but two more layouts in small spaces. One is an HOn3 layout by John Landis, and the other an HOn3 railroad by Gregg Condon, MMR. This issue also features an article by Brooks Stover, on his S scale Swandale, West Virginia, engine house; Pacific Car & Foundry moving cars by Pete Replinger; building a marine railway by Sam Swanson; Mike May describes the new White Pass & Yukon Diesels being delivered to the Durango & Silverton; Part 4, the cab, of Dan Windolph’s series on scratchbuilding an On3 locomotive; Part 1 of a new series by Craig Symington, on building an HO scale model of the Rico Coal Pocket; and the joy of assembled vintage kits by Charlie Getz. All this and more in the July/August issue of Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette!

When I saw the Wondercutter in my latest Micro-Mark catalog, I knew I had to try one, because cutting with an X-Acto knife was getting difficult for me.
