Thom Radice has the cover story on his ACW W&A layout in the October issue of Rail Model Craftsman. The article has lots of great photos and a track plan. Check out the purple engine on the cover! Thom's scenery is some of the finest I have seen in an HO layout. He really has captured the feeling of the W&A before it was ravaged by the depredations of the war.
The feature article is part of a special insert on period modeling, with other articles and ads for and about the early rail modeler.
I highly recommend that you pick up this issue and let Carstens Publishing know that you enjoyed the special.
