JANUARY 2019: We kick off 2019 with an issue devoted to Mighty Modern Motive Power. The issue includes Amtrak’s new ACS-64 “Sprinter” electric locomotive on the cover with an in-depth review by David Otte on this exciting prototype and the new Bachmann HO-scale model. You’ll also find reviews of new Tier 4 GEVOs in HO and N scale, and much more in the January issue of Model Railroad News!
