Great "how to" for beginners and oldtimers 2 Jan. 2013
By W. Whitehead - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been in model railroading now not for years but decades and I find this book very informative and also instructive not only for beginners but also for old-timers like myself. You should never think yourself so wise as to thinking you know it all. By looking at others experience and knowledge you will not only add to and enhance your own ideas but also add to your accumulated life's wisdom. I always try to learn something new not just in my hobby but in life itself. This book will certainly save you from mistakes, like I have made, and assist you in deciding what type, size and operation of a model railroad you want to own. It still allows you individual expression whether whimsical or prototype in meeting your own desires but guides you in critical elements to prevent angst and disappointment at a later stage in the construction and operation of your railroad. It is well worth the small cost of the book versus the cost of an error or misstep later on. The old adage "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" aptly applies in this case! Have fun reading and then enjoying the building and development of your railroad!

Excellent for Beginners and Intermediate Modellers 18 Mar. 2012
By Wayne Jameson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent reference for those that are constructing their first, second or third layouts. The text and photographs make the process of constructing various types of baseboards easy to understand and correspondingly easy to construct.

Good baseline book for starting a layout 16 Jan. 2014
By Nick Ouwerkerk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book goes through basic framework to extensive grid type layouts. I liked the fact that they included tools and types of adhesives to utilize in the construction. The book will help everyone from the novice to the moderately experienced model railroader build solid and long lasting benchwork for their next layout. It may also help you understand why previous layouts may not work as well as your next one did.

Great book, glad I spent the money to purchase it. 20 Nov. 2013
By Jim Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is just what I needed. Don't pay attention to the negative reviews. The book is written so anyone at any level experience can understand it and put the techniques to work right away. I inherited a large HO collection and just retired so I was looking for a book that would help me get started correctly on track. This is the one, photos are prefect and the instructions are written so they can be put into action.
