Book Description

3 Nov 1994
This book shows how to build a complete model railway, starting with the design and construction of a baseboard. It then covers how to plan and construct the layout, including the laying of track, adding the scenery and buildings, as well as the installation of the electrical wiring. The process is taken right through to the finishing touches needed to enhance the realism of the scene being modelled. Today, a comprehensive range of locomotives, coaches and wagons is available that can be used straight from the box, enabling the modeller to concentrate on producing an individualistic operating layout on which they can be run. This comprehensive step-by-step guide takes the reader through all the necessary stages, pointing out potential pitfalls on the way. Chapters include layout planning, laying track, simple electrification, making tunnels, bridges, roads and rivers.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Model Railway Manual 16 Jan 2009
Format:Hardcover
I purchased this book for my husband for Christmas after he had borrowed it from the library and loved it. He is new to the hobby of trains and I thought this was the same book as the library edition (same author). I made a mistake. He loves the book and would thoroughly recommend it - the only downside was that all illustrations are in black and white. (The one I was supposed to have purchased is still by Cyril Freezer but called Model Railways and has coloured plates!) Enjoy.
