Thanks guys!  Just to let others know that might be considering purchasing and/or adding a digital subscription to their print subscription, the digital issue has well over 100 more pictures of the layouts which are featured.  It includes 19 more pages of content that we can't fit into the printed pages.  The digital edition not only has more in it but digital subscribers have access to EVERY issue ever published of OGR and access to the digital video library which are all good reasons to consider adding it to your hobby related reading ... all for less than $30.00 per year!

It's in Run 314, the OCT/NOV 2020 issue. This issue has been available to Digital Subscribers for about a week now. Printed copies will be mailed on September 8, and will be in the hands of subscribers in about two weeks.

My issue arrived today, I plan to take time tonight to read it thoroughly. Even though I am digital subscriber, I do not read the digital version until after I read the print edition as I do not want to ruin my reading of the print edition.

Thanks guys!  Your comments are very inspiring!  Some of you have contacted us about receiving your run 314 issue.  Believe me, if you are on the subscriber's list, your issue has been mailed.  Keep in mind that there does seem to be a delay in delivery compared to earlier this year.  On the other hand, the digital subscription has been out this the first of the month ...

I received Run 314 earlier this week...and while I've seen parts of Alan's layout in pictures and videos in the past, it is always fantastic to see more, and the bonus was to read about its construction...I never realized how expansive it actually was ~ 1,200 sq. ft with nice long stretches and broad curves!  Alan and I obviously share a passion for building in the 3rd dimension, although mine is a fraction of the size and scope and I only kit-bash Railking structures, yet I understood some time ago that utilizing urban scenery on a layout is analogous to what some attempt to do with mountains, i.e., let the trains disappear and re-appear, go in and out of tunnels, effectively giving the viewer an "mindtrip" whereby the trains appear to be going on a journey; and, from any given vantage point, you're viewing different scenery and you're mind is tricked because you don't know where the trains are! Alan's layout is what I call running trains = fun.

Okay, you got me. Alan Arnold's layout has been a favorite of mine for years. As I plot my way to returning to active O-Scale modeling, and as a very active LEGO skyscraper city builder, I had to bite on this. Just purchased a 2-year Digital subscription just so I can see the additional photos of Alan's layout. Fantastic!!! Looking forward to seeing more awesome stuff from other layouts as well!

I have always wanted to build a nice LEGO skyscraper for the city skyline but based on the number of bricks I would need, a trip to the bank to obtain a loan might be in order!

Thanks!

LEGO skyscrapers do use a lot of bricks. With the variety of elements and colors available you can achieve some great custom effects though. While there are some specific channels that avid builders can use to cut their cost, if you live near one of the company owned LEGO Brand Retail stores and get lucky on their parts selection on a given visit, you can obtain a lot of necessary parts for less than you might think. Right now the store near my home has a couple of different window elements and some basic bricks for walls of the type that I use in large quantities available for bulk purchase on their so-called "Pick-a-Brick Wall". In my own case, it doesn't hurt that I actually work for LEGO on the side.
