NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2021: This issue we conclude our visit to Rich Randall’s fabulous Milwaukee Road layout. Thomas Yorke shares a great article on Backdating an Atlas Plymouth engine with lots of tips on details, painting and weathering to arrive at a well-worn and well-used small switcher for the layout in an industrial setting. Andrew Dodge shares with us exquisite prototype modeling with his kitbashing a LaBelle kit into a Chicosa-class Pullman car. We have the first part on scratchbuilding a blacksmith shop from Lex Parker, modeler extraordinaire, in this issue, too! Finally, we even have a seasonal photo essay of snow and traction to close out the year at Steve Olsen’s house from Nate Gerstein. All this and more in the November/December 2021 issue of O Scale Trains!
