Welcome to the October 2017 issue of Trains magazine. Find out how science saved the double-stack train, how sheep make the Rio Grande narrow gauge, what a wall on Norfolk Southern’s ex-Norfolk & Western Shenandoah line witnessed over the years, examine a map of Milwaukee Road No. 261’s travels from 1993 to 2017, discover the inner workings of a rolling laboratory on New York’s Flushing Line, get the skinny on what really became of all of the stimulus projects, relax with a heartwarming tale (or is it tail?) about a railroad dog and how he stopped a potential tragedy. This and so much more in news, this month’s “Gallery” picks, and your questions answered in “Ask Trains.”
