JUNE 2024: While Detroit, Toledo & Ironton faded into the history books in 1983, Shaun Guzman-Thacker has revived this interesting Midwestern line as a modern regional railroad in HO scale. James Kinkaid returns with scale drawings of Northern Pacific drop-bottom gondolas, while Andrew Castle upgrades and weathers a former Algoma Central SD40-2. Trevor Marshall models an interesting lineside mill in S scale, while Andrew Nelson demonstrates his techniques for building strong, modular benchwork for multi-deck layouts. All this and more in the June issue of Railroad Model Craftsman!
