SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2019: We travel back to Canada as Art and Rich return with their third installment of their “Canadian Adventure” where it’s a day visiting with Lex Parker and his layout in Beamsville near St. Catherine’s. Greg King explains how he became a traction modeler. Robert Ring wraps up in the second half of his very informative article teaching his tricks and techniques to model a detailed wharf scene. In this issue we get an introduction to Myron Shiverick with Part 1 of a pictorial of just a few of the locomotives on the roster of his Southern Pacific layout. Bill Davis, OST’s Model Builder’s Bench columnist, provides us with Part 2 of his photo essay article of the Bradley Machine Shop in Fuquay-Varina, N.C. Ed Bommer relates how to replace that failing Zamac floor in your Weaver troop sleeper or express car. All this and more in the September/October issue of O Scale Trains!
