My layout theme is a portion of the


Valley Line of the Wisconsin Central in the early start-up days, specifically the 1989 to 1992 time frame. I decided I would focus on Wisconsin Rapids, where an interchange with the Green Bay & Western occurred, thus provid- ing traffic to and from another rail- road. The GB&W traffic would enter Wisconsin Rapids, then go to Wausau, which will reside in another staging area. You had referenced a past EDI- TORS NOTEBOOK commentary, “A one- industry” layout in the April, 2010, RMC. My branch line to the paper mill at Nekoosa fits your decription in that commentary.

One town I read with interest the EDITORS NOTEBOOK in the June, 2012, RMC on “One town layouts.” I had been think- ing along these lines for several months after spending much time try- ing to squeeze at least three towns into a modest space in my train room. I fi- nally concluded, after discussing vari- ous aspects with colleagues, that I would be better off focusing on one town. This would also let me have stag- ing to provide traffic from other towns.


PHILIP GLIEBE Waynesville, Ohio Oar locks While looking at the product reviews


in the July, 2012, RMC, I saw Bob Ben- nett’s nice build of a Swampscott dory where he mentioned that he blackened the wire included in the kit for the oar locks. I thought he (and the readers) might like to know that those pins are wood pegs and not metal. The wood pegs are designed to shear off if too much strain is put on them rather than breaking something on the hull. Bob is always careful with details so I’m not trying to critize, just adding a little more information to his nice work. BILL GILL via e-mail
