The author describes the situation with apparent growth in numbers for AF, hi-rail, and Sn3 modelers, but "scale" standard-gauge modelers are lacking. He also covers how the World's Greatest Hobby show doesn't seem to include S-scale, and how difficult it is to get S-scale content and ads into the main model railroading magazines.
In general, S-scale manufacturers have been cognizant of each others' products, so as to avoid duplication-of-effort. However, this column points out a few exceptions. He continues by mentioning the product types that he thinks are best for brass production and those best for plastic models.
The author continues his layout design ideas for an East Broad Top-based Sn3 layout (see June 2002 Dispatch). Includes a map, several prototype photos, and several track plans.
An update on what the NASG's Promotions Committee has been up to in the past year.
The track plan for a small, standard- and narrow-gauge layout initially intended as the B.T.S. display layout, and designed to fit within the space of a show booth, while still allowing walk-around space.
