From The Intro To Vol. 3
I believe the hobby can be a lifelong journey; one that enriches your life in a number of ways. To that end, The Missing Conversation is a place where we consider the deeper questions of railroad modeling.
Volume 03 looks at an aspect of the hobby that is greatly misunderstood by many: Finescale modeling. It’s more than just using a set of tighter standards for track and wheels, to some, it’s a modeling philosophy. In this volume we look at P87 and P48 by weaving
a narrative beginning with a brief history of prototype wheels and then progress on to both movements. The story is more fascinating than I imagined.
I’ve heard that showing is often better than telling, so there’s a rich visual tour of Warner Clark’s popular P48 Nickel Plate inspired layout to help your understanding of finescale modeling in the real world.
