The January 2014 issue celebrates 80 years of Model Railroader magazine and marks the debut of our next project layout, Rice Harbor. This 5 x 8 HO scale layout is set in the steam era and can be configured as an oval or L-shaped model railroad. The issue also features a never-before-published Norfolk & Western track plan designed by legendary layout planner, John Armstrong, and an HO scale New York Central layout that captures the stunning scenery of the Hudson River Valley. You'll also get plans for a trackside factory, an easy method for weathering modern-era well cars, and tips for buying the right Digital Command Control (DCC) sound decoder.
