MARCH/APRIL 2021: We visit Dave Adams’ expanded On30 Rio Grande Durling Branch layout, including beautiful structures, a working telegraph system, and more. Sam Swanson gives us instruction on weathering wood, Allen K. Littlefield kitbashes an On30 2-6-2T, and Johnny Greaybeal continues his series on ET&WNC No. 7 — the only narrow gauge 0-8-0 in the United states — along with David Fletcher’s beautiful drawings. Pete Replinger has Part 2 on Self-Propelled Log Unloading Machines, Gregg Condon describes building his HOn3 version of Telluride, and Dan Windolph shows you how he built the tender for his scratchbuilt On3 model of Colorado Central No. 10. All this and more in the March/April issue of Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette!
