NOVEMBER 2016:We are excited to review Walthers’ SD70ACe, the latest addition to their Mainline series of affordable HO scale models! You’ll also find great reviews of Accucraft’s O scale Rio Grande caboose, Piko’s G scale steam and diesel offering, and much more in the November issue of Model Railroad News!
Accucraft has produced a very fine model of a most popular prototype. Comparing it to photos of the real thing, the company seems to have captured the feel of the Rio Grande short caboose very well. This would make a superb addition to any O-scale narrow gauge railroad.
In 1946, the C&O took five of its Class F-19 Pacific 4-6-2 locomotives and converted them into Class L-1 Hudsons. These limited edition HO scale hybrid models will be available from Broadway Limited, expected November 2016.
