Full Version: Logging References, Part 7
The Railroad Forum > Model Railroading > Research and Reference
MikeC
This is the seventh thread in a series of references for logging modelers. There are so many articles and plans available that I decided to break them up into separate threads to keep them from getting lost in the shuffle.
Note 1: Many of the Gazette references are still available as "back issues" from Benchmark Publications, P.O. Box 26, Los Altos, CA 95164.
Note 2: Virtually all of the Finescale Railroader references are available as "back issues" from Westlake Publishing Co., 1574 Kerryglen Street, Westlake Village, CA 91361 or
www.finescalerr.com
Note 3: Because of copyright concerns, I will not scan or xerox articles or drawings/photos for distribution.
