Layouts in the June 2022 Free Edition

A Day Railfanning Operations on the Santa Fe's Howard Branch in HO
Sit back and relax as you check out Steve Sandifer's layout with Trackside. Steve models the AT&SF Howard Branch in southeastern Kansas as of 1952. You'll see mostly Geeps working the line, where ranches and farms surround the small towns on this beautifully-modeled HO scale pike. The feature includes an article on the layout, many full-page photos, layout maps, and an interview with Steve at the layout. He explains how he operates the layout and some of his construction techniques. Don't miss joining us for this look back in history.

Visiting Kevin Klettke's Washington Northern Railroad in HO
This shorter tour shows off Kevin Klettke's beautiful, freelanced railroad based in Washington State. The WNRR works the Olympic Peninsula with connections to Tacoma and Portland. You'll enjoy this look at a very unique, highly-detailed work of art. This feature includes a brief article about the layout and a layout map.

Scratch-Built Cornstalks
Create your own cornstalks for a small modeled garden or a full corn field. We share an easy way to make very realistic cornstalks. Our sample plants are in HO, but the project can be completed in any scale.
