      Hi Gang,

      This week's cover page photo comes from Thom Welsch of St.
      Louis, Missouri.

      *****
      Shortly after Märklin Gmb introduced it's MiniClub line about 27
      years ago, a young man named Thom Welsch built a modest
      layout and began taking it to local train shows in the St. Louis
      area. Then as now, Z modelers had to use imagination to create
      a Z universe. Thom put his skills and creativity to good use and
      fashioned many scratch built tructures to house the tiny citizens
      of his Z world.

      Thom tells me that the layout is long gone, but some vestiges of
      it remain. One of Thom's surviving buildings is this wonderful
      family cottage complete with shutters on the windows and turned
      pillars holding up the porch roof. Great work, Thom. Thanks
      for sharing it with us.

      Last week's cover featured a photo of the new DG&M clubhouse
      taken by Adam Amick, the public relations officer for the Dallas,
      Garland & Mesquite Railway Systems.
