Railroad Model Craftsman
APRIL 2014: Along with our visit to Tom McInerney's wonderful HO scale steam-era, dual-gauge logging line set in the mountains, we've got plenty of modeling features. From building a concrete arched bridge, to kitbashing C&O and Pere Marquette business cars, to modeling a truck to rail coal loader, and making a load of corrugated pipes. Thomas Yorke shows us how to build structures with Balsa Foam, and Dr. William Buss shares his model of the Chicago Union Station concourse. All this and more in the April edition of Railroad Model Craftsman!
