OTTO PERRY GOES TO IOWA. The Fox Valley O Scalers provide this week's models.
A local passenger train takes water after climbing out of Marquette, Iowa.
Later in the day, the train returns to Marquette.
Friday's models are appearing on Saturday owing to dial-up difficulties from Cold Spring Shops headquarters. The status line for the university's computers indicates all is well but the tone of the person who recorded the message suggests someone a bit harried with requests for information. No doubt there is a lot of last-minute research going on.
