JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2023: William Longley-Cook describes his beautiful O scale Redgate Mill. But what is exciting about his model is that he uses it to detail an On30 garden railway. Rob Bell continues his series on White Pass & Yukon Route locomotives by describing two pairs, or four of kind locomotives once used on that line. Peter Replinger shows photos of two steel bridges on the Simpson Logging Company. This is followed by an article on an S scale portable sawmill by Ted Van Pelt. Gregg Condon takes elements from a prototype stamp mill and builds his own version called the Silver Spur Mill. An unusual HOn3 bicycle 4-2-4 locomotive built for a friend years ago is described by Gary Bothe. Scenery artist Sam Swanson shows you how he added a small pond to one of his light weight HOn30 modules; and Dan Windolph builds the Alpine No. 2 Firehouse for his On3 layout. All this and more in the January/February Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette!
