Not sure, where to post this, So feel free to move it...

One article in the Oct. 2020 issue of Model Rialroader is called 'Lessons from a scenic Northwoods layout'.
Could someone enlighten me on which part of the country this Northwoods layout might be based on and what it's all about?

I'm asking because all of these magazine are so expensive here in Germany, I just don't want to waste money if it is not interesting.

"North by North Western
by Cody Grivno, group technical editor
Winding rivers and dense stands of evergreen trees. The rumble of diesel engines and the echo of steam whistles. Fishermen hoping to reel in the big one and tourists looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. These are just some of the sights and sounds on John Mueller's HO scale Chicago & North Western (C&NW) Northern Memories layout. The 32 x 39-foot model railroad is set in the northwoods of Wisconsin in 1953."

Thanks a lot Ed.
I think that's enough info to buy the MR issue.
