SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2022: We visit Joe Ioele’s Pennsylvania Railroad/Norfolk & Western Southern Division layout, where we will take a trip through central Pennsylvania, mid-Maryland, the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, and finally the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in 1957. We also bring to a conclusion Herm Botzow’s series on “Building Your Layout.” We continue with Yves Vidal’s adventure resurrecting an old Westside Virginian Triplex with Part 4 of this series. Lex Parker shares a delightful and detailed scratchbuilding exercise with us in “Building a Coal Shed” that was located at Cumbres, New Mexico. Lastly, David Richter presents us with building an O scale fireboat for the Mystic River Industrial District on his Ponaganset Northern Railroad. All this and more in the September/October issue of O Scale Trains!
