A loaded 20-ton G&LR hopper rolls by gravity past a modest board-and-batten home at the edge of Hall Hollow. The structure was built with a basswood frame and styrene boards and batten by Sam Swanson. Starting on page 22, Sam shares some of the various techniques he uses to build board-and-batten structures. Photo by Sam Swanson. INSET: Ted York shows us how he is modeling a three-dimensional backdrop featuring Mormon Rocks on his Cajon Pass layout. Turn to page 28 for Part 1 of this two-part article. Photo by Ted York.
