Layouts in the September 2018 Issue
Montana Operations of the Milwaukee Road
Visit Dave Heckeroth’s Milwaukee Road Rocky Mountain Division with us. The HO scale layout connects eastern Montana and northern Idaho and is based from the 1960s to the 1970s. Dave has constructed beautiful scenes of the MILW’s route with an emphasis on Deer Lodge and Missoula. The MILW includes the Hoerner Waldorf Mill in Schilling as well as lots of other industry and a logging spur, as Dave is primarily interested in operations.
Black Canyon & Western
See Jim Barta’s freelanced HO scale Black Canyon & Western Railroad, based in September 1957. The railroad utilizes both steam and diesel power, and you’ll see a variety of railroads operating on its trackage alongside the BC&W custom power. The BC&W is built for operations and Jim incorporates some unusual ideas to keep it interesting. You will enjoy his creativity and scenery along the route from Utah to Montana.
Make a Texture Sheet for a Rock Wall or Path
This creative project shows you how to make your own reusable texture sheet that can be used to build a patio, a pathway, or a rock wall. We share the steps to make the texture sheet that you can use over and over when building scenery. The sheet we make is intended for HO scale.
