Weathering with Watercolors

In the March 2021 Issue

Exploring the Milwaukee Road's Rocky Mountain Division
Learn some of the MILW's history and enjoy historical photos while also touring two HO scale layouts of the MILW's Rocky Mountain Division: both Bill Barker and Dave Heckeroth model beautiful versions of the line across Montana and into Idaho. You'll see Little Joes, boxcabs, and diesel motive power working the layouts. Rather than two separate layout tours, this is an extra long feature combining both with many photographs.

Weathering with Watercolors
Try your hand at weathering cars with watercolors. We share an easy way to practice your skills and make your rolling stock look more like the real thing.


Layout tours of both of these layouts are available on Blu-ray and DVD.
