MARCH 2021: This month, we visit Bret Overholtzer’s busy N scale model railroad, which recreates Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railway’s bygone route across Missouri in the 1980s. Jim Providenza and Seth Neumann team up to build a working tilt-board signal, while Gaylord Gill scratchbuilds a model of an Erie Railroad interlocking tower from Buffalo, N.Y. Brian Moore explains the connection he made with another Southern Pacific modeler in the UK that he never had the chance to meet in person. Enjoy scenery tips and techniques, product news and reviews, and more in the March issue of Railroad Model Craftsman!
FW Tower controlled a triangle of trackwork where routes of the Pennsylvania Railroad, Erie Railroad, and Buffalo Creek Railroad all crossed each other in Buffalo, N.Y. The author’s S scale model was a perfect fit for his Northeastern-themed Buffalo & Chautauqua Railroad.
