JULY/AUGUST 2021: Peter Leach is building a detailed On30 model railroad based on the 2-foot gauge Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railroad in Maine. In this issue, he describes how he built this detailed model of unique boxcar 312. Bert Donlon tells how to make videos that look as if you are in the train on your layout, and Johnny Graybeal describes Eastern Tennessee & Western North Carolina No. 9 in Part 6 of his series. Peter Replinger shows many photos of the Kosmos Logging Co., followed by a description of the Southeastern Narrow Gauge & Shortline Museum by Johnny Graybeal. Craig Symington shows you how to modify an HOn3 PSC caboose kit into Rio Grande Southern 0409, and Charlie Getz describes how he details several older Bachmann Plasticville models. All this and more in the July/August 2021 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.

Why Would Anyone Not…?

I was fortunate to have visited several of the old California logging lines, and they have influenced my modeling for more than 70 years.
