80 years at Webster Groves
by Kenneth Rimmel
The St. Louis & San Francisco Ry. (Frisco) called the station Webster Groves, but the local community called it Shady Side, after a nearby neighborhood. Today, the railroad depot at 8833 Big Bend Boulevard in St. Louis County, Mo., is the last depot remaining out of the five that once stood along the Frisco within the city of Webster Groves. It’s also one of only two remaining depots out of about two dozen on this rail line in St. Louis County.

Midwestern scenery basics
by Pelle Søeborg
For me, modeling scenery is the most rewarding phase of building a model railroad. It’s especially rewarding when people recognize a scene on my layout as a place that they’ve been, even though the modeled scene is completely fictional. Featured in the May 2017 issue, my HO scale Union Pacific Daneburg Subdivision may not be a model of a specific prototype location, but I’ve done my best to make sure the layout scenery captures the flavor of a Midwestern landscape.

85 and still alive
by Hal Miller
Readers of Model Railroader have been introduced to thousands of layouts in the magazine’s 85 years. One of the first to debut – and to meet its demise – was founder Al Kalmbach’s O scale Great Gulch, Yahoo Valley & Northern.

Last ride on the Ohio Southern
by Jim Hediger, senior editor
Though most people are familiar with my HO scale Ohio Southern (OS) as presented here,  I built my first iteration of the OS on a 5 x 9-foot table when I was in junior high school.


Model Railroader features step-by-step how-to projects; great model train layouts; and realistic track plans. You'll also get reviews of the latest locomotives, rolling stock, and accessories in HO, N, O, and other scales, expert tips, and more!
