DECEMBER 2019: Dan Munson takes us on a tour of Dave Waraxa’s freelanced HO scale model railroad based on the BNSF route between Spokane, Wash., and Sandpoint, Idaho, which also hosts Union Pacific and Montana Rail Link trains as well. Clifton Lifton describes the modern petrochemical industry and how you can easily add butane shipping operations to your layout. Alexander Craghead presents the Guilds Lake Industrial Park, an urban switching district that could be modeled in many eras. Enjoy scenery tips and techniques, product news and reviews, and more in the December issue of Railroad Model Craftsman!
With dozens of active customer sidings, Guild’s Lake in Portland, Oregon, is an ideal prototype for modeling the practices of urban industrial switching.
The assembled REO High Wheel Box Truck kits produce a striking model of an interesting and unusual early vehicle.
