I ran into them at a model train show in Seattle last month and showed them photos of what I had. They called last night to ask if they could come by this weekend to do the photography. They do all the work, and I’m really interested in seeing someone else’s take on what I have built. They’ve covered a few layouts around here in the past (the December issue on their website has a cover for a layout in Olympia that I’ve seen a couple of times in person). They’re out of Spokane, so they use a lot of stuff in the northwest corner of the country. They told me they were happy to document a layout with a southeast concept, as they have subscribers around the world. It’s not a free publication, though, so people are going to have to pay for the content to see it. I recently got a CD of a couple of years of their publications, and I liked their work.
I was lining up some trains for the photo shoot on Saturday, and decided to put all three of my wartime-painted ten-wheelers for the first time since I weathered them over a year ago:
And the other end...

I really liked what they did.
As this is he second good coverage I've gotten and a third article should be out early this year in the Narrow Gauge and Shortline Gazette, I've taken to framing covers or first pages of the articles facing the door to the layout room:
There's a space to the right of that for the Gazette article when it comes out (would be great if I got a cover but I doubt they will do that).
