I just picked up a copy of GMR 2010. It's a great issue. The layouts featured are uniformly excellent. There is some good modeling going on out there.

Bernie,

I agree.  I particularly like The City Edge layout.  I don't think I've seen a cityscape so well depicted before.

City Edge was great, as was Ron Sipkovich's layout in N scale.  He just did an article in N Scale (I think) on how he did the rocks fo rthe Sullivan's Curve area.  Nice to see those two together.

It's funny, as soon as I left MBK yesterday I remembered I wanted a copy of this.

Sadly, Wegmans didn't have it. They DID have the realistic trackplans book though, and RMC.

You doing your hobby shopping in the meat department again?
To "call a spade a spade" is to speak honestly and directly about a topic, specifically topics that others may avoid speaking about due to their sensitivity or embarrassing nature. The Oxford English Dictionary records a more forceful variant, "to call a spade a bloody shovel", attested since 1919.

Hey, don't knock it! It's awesome that I can buy caviar, bacon, $.30 pasta and model train mags in the same store...

Nope, a different one. I was actually tempted...

I already have yours, gotta find it though. I think it's time to look at it in a new light (now that I have space...).

The Cities Edge is an excellent depiction of a Cityscape. I even purchased the DVD in HD.

Does anyone know where I can get GMR2009? I could swear I ordered it when I subscribed so when it was on the stands didn't buy it cause I thought mine was in the mail. Well whatever happened I don't have it.  :(

I'm going to try to get to my local Hobby Blow USA... they usually have it on the rack.  If I see it I'll pick one up for you... maybe by the end of the week.

After searching e-bay over and over I just gave up and ordered it from Kalmbach. Was flipping through it at work last night.
