Most of the track has been laid on the HO scale Virginian Ry. model railroad, so it's time to run a test train around the main line. Model Railroader managing editor David Popp will also show you how to spot and fix problems with the model train track.

Please note the following correction to the March 2012 installment of the series in Model Railroader magazine.
On page 41 of the March issue, the incorrect Atlas numbers were given for Snap-Switches, reversing the right and left designations. The correct numbers and quantities are as follows: 540 18” Snap-Switch left (1), 541 18” Snap-Switch right (4), 546 22” Snap-Switch left (1), and 547 22” Snap-Switch right (1). We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
