On the cover: Southern Pacific Extra 4185 East glides up to the water plug at my freelanced town of Yuba Gap, circa 1949. Soon the sunset will fade and darkness will come before the extra reaches the summit. Robert McLaughlin’s layout is named the Sierra Northern and is loosely based on famous Western US railroad passes such as Donner Summit and Stampede Pass. You can start your tour of his fantastic layout on page 18.
