On the cover: An electric boxcab leaves Harlowton Station with a short passenger consist on Dan Lewis’ The North Montana Line (Milwaukee Road in Montana). No manufacturer offers a Westinghouse Quill motor (the EP3s) so far as I know, but this Kato 3008 EF15 is a reasonable stand-in. For more, see Dan Lewis’ article on page 18.
