ABOUT THE COVER

Among the layouts on tour at this year's N M RA 1 996 Long Beac h Limited is David Balse r 's Onion Valley Lumber and Mining Company. For a sneak preview of this HO standard-gauge line turn to page 34. Although this is David's first layout, scratchbuilding and craftsmanship are evident everywhere. Photo by Mary Barstow. INSET: Dave Bontrager shows how he enhanced the appearance of a predecorated Athearn Southern Paci fic 9-44CW starting on page 49, proving that you don 't have to start with an undecorated model.
