Model railroading is more than just HO scale. This month, in support of the Worlds Greatest Hobby campaign, we look at modeling in N scale with a look at the history of an NTRAK module...and at O scale with a feature on scratchbuilding SP cab forwards...and at G gauge with a detailing project for an A-B-A lashup of Pennsy F3s. But, as always, you can count on a wealth of prototype information, along with a great HO diesel modeling project. This month, Mark Sharp shows us how he kitbashed and detailed this high-hood N&W GP40 starting on page 30. But dont dismay if kitbashing isnt your cup of tea...Atlas now offers a high-nose GP40 and has saved you the effort. Photo by Mark Sharp.
