March 2017 Magazine on DVD and Blu-ray
For those who would like to view the magazine on their televisions, you can now purchase the magazine on DVD or Blu-ray. The DVD and Blu-ray will contain the entire magazine with a video of both layouts that includes photos and video with a narration of the articles. There will also be the option to view the magazine page by page (which can be paused if you wish). The DVD and Blu-ray will play the same way, but the Blu-ray video is higher quality and has a smoother playback due to a higher frame rate.

All subscribers and those who have already purchased this month’s magazine will also receive an additional $2.00 off (a potential savings of $4.00 off retail price).

Colorado & Rio Grande Southern Corp
Greg and Maggie Walters’ HO scale layout is the freelanced Colorado & Rio Grande Southern Corporation, which operates in autumn 1964. The layout is built on three interconnected levels in standard gauge HO, HOn3, and a section of HOn30. The vertical structure allows for quite a bit of railroading in a small space. The showcase layout is a great example of what can be done in a small space when you build vertically.
The M&W Railroad is a freelanced HO scale railroad modeled by Chris LeBaugh. The layout features the Great Northern Railway in a freelanced locale in the 1950s. Chris runs both diesel and steam locomotives on the layout, and in addition to the GN he runs some Southern Pacific and Spokane, Portland & Seattle power. The M&W is a good layout for operations.
