Trackside Model Railroading is the magazine for model railroad enthusiasts who want an in-depth view of layouts. We cover two layouts each month, including all fine scales. Our railfanning style includes video of the trains running on the layouts as well as an article and many photographs of each layout we share.

We offer some of the layouts we feature on Blu-ray & DVD. The videos are usually 80-120 minutes and have much more video of the layouts and often bonus features that are not in the magazine.

Trackside Model Railroading's Current Issue

Layouts featured in this month's magazine:

Proto-Freelanced Mining on the CCNG in On3
You'll love this O scale railroad modeled after the Nevada County Narrow Gauge, but in Oregon. The Cascade County Narrow Gauge is based from 1925-1932. It was built by Dave Clune, an exceptional modeler who recently passed away. We share many full-page photos of the layout, an article about its construction and operations, and a diagram of the track plan. You'll enjoy Dave's scenery, details, and structures, much of which he built from scratch. He also built many of the locomotives from kits. All around, the CCNG is a layout you won't want to miss! Please join us in honoring Dave's work.
