MAY 2019: Car Float No. 13 prepares to be unloaded with interchange traffic destined for the waterfront warehouses of Manhattan on Christopher Brimley’s freelanced Hudson Terminal Railroad, an N scale switching layout based on the marine operations of New York Harbor. Scott Sanders shows us how he kitbashed a fleet of unique Georgetown Railroad aggregate hoppers in HO, while Mark Juett walks us through the steps to scratch building a deck girder bridge from simple brass shapes. The students of Illinois Institute of Technology show off their latest completed FreeMo module, while associate editor Harry K. Wong recaps the 2019 Bridgetown RPM Meet. All this and more in the May issue of Railroad Model Craftsman!
Stephen Priest decided early on that he wanted a major locomotive facility on his Santa Fe St. Louis Division to showcase his motive power while modeling the practices of the prototype. The care and servicing of locomotives is very interesting and fun to replicate.
ExactRail has recently released an N-scale model of the Johnstown America AutoFlood II in a number of paint schemes reflecting many of the owners and operators of these cars.
These HO scale tank cars from American Limited feature outstanding detail and should be considered an essential addition for Santa Fe fans.
