JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2019: Jeff Scherb takes you on a tour of the 30-inch gauge Kalka-Simla Railway in India. Jeff tells us advanced reservations are recommended because the ride is so spectacular. For something really different read Urban Narrow Gauge by Todd Gieg, where he describes his HOn3 Boston Revere Beach & Lynn. Mike May has modeled the modern narrow gauge scene with his HOn3 White Pass & Yukon layout. Large scalers will enjoy Bob Poli’s F scale South Pacific Coast caboose 47, and scenery fans will learn from Bob Bennett’s techniques for creating a scenic pond. All this and more in the January/February 2019 Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette.
