McCormac’s Kit

On the cover: Winter comes early to the high country so the old trusty Heisler is kept busy bringing loads down from the logging camps before the snow shuts down the operation. The logs will be transferred to trucks from this point, then transported to the abundant mills in the area. Heavy loads like pulp wood require multiple units like the UP Specialty locomotives to conquer the summit at Rock Point. Explore this layout further in Ken Kilby’s The Grand Strand Model Railroad Club, Part 3, starting on page 16.
