From the cover: This book shows how to build a complete model railway from scratch, 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 adding the finishing touches to enhance the realism of the scene being modelled. Today, a comprehensive range of locomotives, coaches and wagons are 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. Whether you wish to depict the current railway scene with diesel and electric traction, or recreate the great days of steam in miniature, the stage-by-stage illustrations will guide you through the exercise.
