Layouts in the June 2018 Issue

Port Columbia & Eastern Railroad in HO Scale
The freelanced Port Columbia & Eastern Railroad connects the town of Port Columbia on the Columbia River with Waitsburg and Orchard on the east side of Washington. The railroad’s route crosses White Pass. It hauls logs and ore down from the mountains and a variety of other freight along the route. You will see the Port Columbia & Eastern’s own custom-painted locomotives in its striking black and yellow paint scheme as well as other power on the layout. Some of the other railroads we include in our feature are the Milwaukee Road, the Union Pacific, and the Great Northern. We think you will enjoy the scenic layout, which includes an interesting wharf, lots of industry in the cities, and the rivers and forests up in the mountains where the logging line and mines operate. We include photographs, video, and a story of the PC&E.

Pacific Rail & Transportation in N Scale
See Mike Bucy’s Pacific Rail & Transportation in operation. The N scale layout is a freelanced shortline built on a door with an extension. Mike is predominately interested in operations, so he has included seven industries for the railroad to serve and an elevated branch line. The Class III railroad also interchanges with the BNSF. The railroad is nicknamed the PacRaT and has a long history in the fictional Pacific Northwestern town of West Creston. It runs older secondhand power, mostly GP9s and GP38s. We include a short video of the layout along with the photos and the story.

Build a Scratch-Built Shop: Part 1
In this two-part project, we will construct an industrial shop from scratch. The measurements are given in scale feet, so though we build our shop in HO scale it could easily be constructed in another scale.
