Thank you for reading the current Free Edition

Layouts in the November 2018 Free Edition

The MRL in Big Sky Country

See Dave Mitchell's freelanced Dakota & Western Montana, a short line that connects the MRL and BNSF main lines. Our feature focuses on the MRL's operations on the layout. You will enjoy Dave's creative scenery, which includes the towns of Deerfield and Lewistown as well as Montana's scenic mountains.

Storytelling on the D&RGW

See Rodney Frey's small HOn3 layout located in southwestern Colorado. The freelanced narrow gauge layout is based in the 1940s and is highly detailed. Rodney runs the Denver & Rio Grande Western on the White Pine D&RGW.
