MAY/JUNE 2018: ISSUE 97:We visit Tom Piccirillo’s beautiful Somerset County Traction System, combining heavy electric traction modeling and beautiful Northeastern scenes. Jim DeBruin takes us behind the scenes at OK Streamliners, while Rober Ring updates and improves a classic custom-built steam locomotive in brass. All this and more in Issue 97 of O Scale Trains Magazine!
Whether you’re running conventional cab-control or command control, an O scale locomotive drive should have impeccable mechanical and electrical performance properties before any electronics are added.
Scranton Railroads could be twice the price, and it would still be a remarkable value for modelers interested in the how’s and why’s of heavy-duty railroading in an industrialized, urban environment in Pennsylvania’s Anthracite coal fields.
