MAY/JUNE 2022: Brooks Stover has been modeling the Buffalo Creek & Gauley Railroad in S scale for many years, including this model of their unique 1921 Mack Railbus. Greg Wright shows you how to have fun with foamcore in 1:35 scale by building a tramway ore house. Don Rose describes a beautiful 1:20.3 scale Oahu Railroad & Land Company outside frame, 3-foot gauge 0-6-0. The Grant C-16s used on the White Pass & Yukon are covered by Rob Bell with Dave Fletcher’s beautiful drawings. Pete Replinger describes the 3-foot gauge Consolidated Lumber Co. at Elk, Washington, with a log car plan. Richard Compton tells how he makes large scale vintage trucks from bits and pieces of stuff. Gregg Condon shows you how simply adding a porch roof to a building can change it, and Dan Windolph shows how he built Colorado’s Chalk Cliffs on his On3 layout. All this and more in the May/Junel 2022 Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette!
