just like most everybody, but we try to fix them too... We credited the modular N scale railroads to the NTRAK group of the South Suburban Division of the Rocky Mountain Region of the National Railroad Association on page 74 of the Fall 1980 issue. Those NTRAK modules are actually the work of the NTRAK members of the Denver (Colorado) Area N Scale Club that meets every Tuesday in the basement of the Forney Museum (railroad and automobile museum, that is). We are sorry for our confusion - the HO scale modular layout on page 38 of this issue really is the work of the South Suburban Division ... We're also trying to do something about those typographical errrors!

ON THE COVER: You don't have to sacrifice anything to make your model railroad portable. Jim Ely's HO scale scene encompasses some of the best modeling and the chance for 50-car trains on a portable module that is one of a dozen 4-footers. The cars and locomotives shown are Larry Madson's. The story begins on page 38 ... The back cover is another proof-in-doing example; proof that not all Lionel layouts live under Christmas trees or on display shelves. Ralph johnson's story appears on page 72.
