Layouts in the September 2016 Issue Free Edition
Rio Grande Southern & Denver & Rio Grande Western in On3
This month we visit Jim Reardon’s Rio Grande Southern and Denver & Rio Grande Western layout, featuring the towns of Murphy, Cumbres, and freelanced Nocksville. Jim scratch-built trestles and tunnels from the area and models the mid-1950s on the picturesque pike.

We also travel back in time on Wayne Hill’s layout, which is a freelanced version of the Colorado Midland Railroad based in 1917. Wayne and several friends have modeled parts of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. They model the town of Ivanhoe and the Ivanhoe-Busk Tunnel, as well as early 1900s logging in Hagerman Pass on the W. Hill Branch Line.

Build a Road on Your Layout
The project this month shows you how to build a road with a crossing on your layout or diorama. It is longer than most of our projects, but is still simple enough for anyone to complete. If you want to build the precast concrete crossing along with the road, you will need to refer to the September 2014 issue of Trackside Model Railroading. That issue includes the printable crossing (in HO scale) and the instructions to build it. (You can also build the road without using that crossing if you wish.)
