Yes Jose, I have have downloaded some of them for a read in years gone by. Well worth a look even though the prototype and scale are not the same as mine.
I think the magazine struggles for input and readers as most US O gauge seems to be centered on the Lionel toy market. A marked contrast to (say) the UK where finescale modelling in O gauge is alive and well with a thriving market in kits and scratchbuilding supplies.

I spent more than a little time away from detail work on my layout, reading these. Thanks for that link!
I must admit I see the magazine at a local book store, but it's awfully thin and short of content to merit me buying an issue yet...
Seems like it had a lot more content in years past.

If you want 2-rail O-scale that's the magazine to get here in the states. They do struggle for articles, I keep meaning to submit but it seems I'm always half way thru a build when I realize i forgot to take photos!!!

There's some very talented people who do submit, well worth the time to read.

I started getting them in the mail a few years ago, but download the first 30 or so to have all the issues.

The original "owner" died not too long ago and his wife is keeping it going with the help of several people.

They also have an online forum, but it doesn't get a lot of traffic, real shame too.
