This first issue for 2014 brings you the models of Don Wetzel who piloted the NYC RDC-3 M-497 to a world speed record of 183.85 m.p.h. on July 23, 1966. We thought you might enjoy seeing how this well-known NYCSHS member enjoys our wonderful hobby of model railroading.
We also tell you about the “NYC Piney Fork Branch Railroad” by Seth Gartner, and feature detailed drawings on the NYC Battery Houses from the “Engineering Department” by Manuel Duran-Duran with Larry Faulkner building them for us in the “Harmon Files.”
We provide you with a fine article on what is available in a scale we haven’t had any pieces written on in “NYC Modeling in S-scale” by Dick Karnes. And we let you read about “The Paint Code Triangle” in a well-researched article by Peter Weiglin.
Next we ask you to spend some time in Pete LaGuarda’s basement as he tells us about “Preparing the Basement” for his layout.
We treat you to another in the series of articles from Ron Parisi on “NYCRR’s West Side Freight Lines – Part 3”. You will be informed with Ron’ tales and many of the photographs from his collection on that part of the NYCS.
