The model railroad world is a buzz with all the excitement created by the release of the Tier 4 Gevo models from InterMountain and ScaleTrains.com.

Both models are very nicely done, we talk with both Shane “the Young Gun” and Tony Cook the editor of Model Railroad News. There’s lots to learn, when comparing the models from two different manufacturers side by side.

You’ll even get a chance to learn about the “flaming loop” an industry standard when it comes to testing model railroad locomotives. 

Enjoy !!

Jerry Britton volunteered to take over organization of the great event recently and has created a great website for everyone to use.

Mike Skibbe has gone from child laborer at a hobby shop to the guy who keeps everybody happy at the Naperville RPM meet. But it’s not in Naperville anymore it’s now moved across the street to Lisle, Illinois and it’s official name is Railroad Prototype Modelers Conference Chicagoland.

Mike is also an original member of the N scale Modutrak group, a collection of like minded modelers working to build a highly realistic N scale modular layout. Mike is fond of the phrase, better modeling through peer pressure but don’t fooled this just a group of guys trying to elevate each others modeling.

We also learned how to pronounce Des Plaines and Illinois. Enjoy!!!
