On the cover: The Walther’s Machine Shop, altered and enhanced, becomes a major feature in Falls Yard on Dan Lewis’ North Montana Line. A nicely engineered kit, it can be adjusted in size and improved with details, including an interior, to make it a “front and center” structure on the layout. Here, a MILW Geep is visible through the open shop door alongside the caboose track. You can find this kitbashed structure, and more, starting on page 17.
