Get a sneak peek at two new HO scale diesel locomotives and other new HO and N scale model train products in this month's Cody's Office. The F40PH-2D from Rapido Trains features an ESU LokSound Digital Command Control (DCC) decoder and the GP30 from Walthers includes a SoundTraxx DCC decoder. Watch both run on the Milwaukee, Racine & Troy. Associate editor Cody Grivno will show you how to use prototype paperwork to design a more realistic model railroad.
