Sent this one back. I thought this book would offer a valuable insight. I thought this would have covered vastly what I was looking for as it lists the key elements to achieve that layout in a limited space. Unfortunately, I found this disappointing. The book has a nice new cover with colour photos, the contents are very much the old book with a few amendments to cover some of the modern developments and sadly what seems to be all of the old photos. Would have been better doing a complete new book with modern layouts I think. Had a look at the Haynes professional approach to model railways in Waterstones. This I can highly recommend, just don't pay their prices, along with the 60 plans for small layouts available from Gaugemaster.
