NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2020: This month we feature Pete Leach’s On30 On30 Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railway. Bob Poli builds a stamp mill in F scale, Brooks Stover constructs a logging caboose in S scale, and Dieter Jaeger creates a tractor shed in O scale from digital images. Johnny Graybeal continues his series on East Tennessee & Western North Carolina locomotives with drawings by David Fletcher, and Mike May continues his three part series on lighting your layout. Craig Symington starts a two part series on taking old brass locomotives and rebuilding them for your layout, and Charlie Getz describes building a Mega-kit. All this and more in the November/December 2020 issue of Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette!
Burlington 2-8-0 537 had outside frames with brake rods exposed under the driver counter-weights, a long smoke box, Burlington-style cuckoo clock headlight, and a bear trap spark arrester.
Given the wide spread sale of surplus Vulcan and Davenport locomotives after the war, this 2-6-2T Trench Engine is very useful for freelance layouts.
