E. L. Moore gets the cover of Aug '63 RMC

Title tells all. That's E. L. Moore's Octagonal Water Tower that appeared in the issue along with the 3rd part of Gil Melle's Oak Hill Pithead project and Whit Tower's Single Stall Engine House, so it was a gold mine for structure builders. As well as being an E. L. Moore cover, it's also in that style of splashing the image over the entire page, something that Model Railroader was also doing during that period, but often with a little more daring in that they sometimes left off just about all text and let the image do the talking. Although, I wouldn't be surprised to find an RMC cover in that league.
