MARCH/APRIL 2023: We visit Jerry Hoverson’s HOn3 Colorado Pacific, the narrow gauge subsidiary of his HO scale Rocky Mountain Central. Jim Gray takes us on a tour of his HO Scale abandoned mining town, while Brooks Stover shows us how he scratchbuilt a model of the Swandale planing mill in S scale. Part 7 of Rob Bell’s series on locomotives of the White Pass & Yukon Route describes several “brute” locomotives once used on the railroad. All this and more in the March/April Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette!
