I pre-ordered my 2016 HOn3 Annual quite awhile ago, well it finally arrived today. Only having thumbed through it so far, there is an interesting article on modeling neon lighted signs. Some good layout photos and overall it looks great. I have a complete set of the HOn3 Annuals now. Time to get the On30 Annuals as well I suppose.
White River Publications sure puts out a quality magazine, I'm so glad they purchased Railroad Model Craftsman magazine instead of letting that one just fade away.
The article which interest's me is one on Container's, as the WP&Y Rly had an system in place in 1955 for container shipments. Truck to Ship, Ship to Train, Train to Truck for final delivery. NG container shipping has been around for a few years.
Recall container loads on the FCH&H and the FCC&SA, both 3Ft gauge.
