FEBRUARY 2021: Kato’s N-scale Canadian National Transcontinental set is featured in our Canadian themed edition with a review of this recent release by Justin Sobeck. Additional Canadian subjects include Rapido Trains’ N-scale Dash 8-40CM and HO-scale Budd RDCs, plus a Prototype Profile on rebuilt MLW RS-18s. All this and more in the February issue of Model Railroad News!
InterMountain’s HO-scale modified 1937 AAR boxcar model remains an excellent example of this prototype. Introduced in late 1938, the modified plans gave railroads operating west of Chicago some extra cargo volume, especially handy for the grain hauling roads during harvest season, for example. InterMountain offers 16 different paint schemes in its current production run of its HO-scale model.
