For the last 50 years Dick Elwell's HO scale Hoosac Valley RR has been an inspiration to model railroaders. In the August issue, see exclusive photos of all-new scenes on this legendary layout. Other August issue highlights include a prototype-based multi-deck track plan for a modern-day CSX line as well as a story about using 3-D printing technology to model a large Union Pacific passenger station. You'll also find a tour of a Z scale coal-hauling model railroad, tips for better soldering, and much more!
