MAY/JUNE 2019: Read about Mike May’s HOn3 model of a White Pass & Yukon flatcar especially made to haul 80-foot-long pipe sections for a pipeline; Bill Allen’s scratchbuilt, 1:32 scale live steam model of the Oregon Pony; a neat way Jack Burgess installs HO scale open turnbuckles on truss rods; Lind Wickersham’s realistically detailed O scale Gilpin Tram water tank; Dan Windolph continues his series on scratchbuilding On3 passenger cars, with a neat way to make roofs and sides; and well-known logging author, Pete Replinger, begins a series on logging railroads with some small lines near the Hood Canal in Washington state. All this and more in the May/June 2019 issue of Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette!
