40 years ago in May 1972

I picked up four issues of Model Railroader from 1972 on the weekend. The January issue contained E. L. Moore’s Dollar Model article on how to build his Carolina Foundry, so I was happy with that find. The cover of the May issue was one of those that didn’t have any text on it telling the potential purchaser about what was inside. The image isn’t as visually striking as that on the October ’73 cover, but I’m always impressed by the calmness – and confidence - of these advertising free covers.

The inside back cover has this fun Atlas ad. I’m a sucker for these kinds of drawings.
