ABOUT THE COVER

65 70

Jim Harringtons Green Valley & Western Railroad is a standard gauge HO scale layout with a narrow gauge feel to it. Although Jims layout is located in his home in southern Indiana, across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky, his layout makes visitors feel like theyre out west in the Rockies. Turn to page 36 for a tour of this interesting layout. Photo by Miles and Fran Hale. INSET: Starting on page 21, Vic Roseman concludes his article on converting a Walthers Power Plant kit into a movie theater that will fit into almost any size town or city. Photo by V. S. Roseman.
