An industrial area in 4 x 12 feet
by Chris Dening
My HO scale Agawa Yard layout is set in a fictional suburb of Vancouver, B.C., in the spring of 1969. It’s part of a single-track main line that zig-zags through the suburbs and provides rail access to the area’s dwindling towns and industries.

Up against a wall
by Gerry Leone
Some model railroaders are lucky enough to design their layout, then build their train room around it. Most have the opposite problem: we design our layouts to fit into existing bedrooms, basements, dens, attics, and outbuildings.

Rock Island in the 1960s
by Mike Armstrong
Growing up in the 1960s, I got hooked on the Rock Island Line. At that time I lived in central Iowa in the small town of Nevada on the Rock Island’s Mid-Continent Route that ran between St. Paul, Minn., and Kansas City, Kan. This line is also called the Spine Line, and is still operated today by the Union Pacific RR.

Build the N scale Canadian Canyons Part 3
by Steven Otte
As Model Railroader Video Plus producer David Popp explained in the first installment of this project layout series in January, the raison d’etre of the N scale Canadian Canyons is railfanning. The model railroad is designed to reproduce scenes seen by Drew Halverson, Kent Johnson, and Charlie Conway on a train-watching trip they documented in a series of videos for MRVP. [See “Drew’s Trackside Adventures,” episodes 29 through 31. – Ed.] So as important as scenery usually is to a model railroad, it’s even more important on this one.
