Model Railroading from Prototype to Layout


Softcover book.

Subtitled "How to use full-size railroads for information and inspiration".

Modeling a specific prototype railway is easier now than ever before. The variety of locomotive, rolling stock, and structure models based on specific prototypes has never been greater, and these models come from the factory with a level of detailing that once required lots of aftermarket parts and many hours at the workbench. This book will guide you as you research and select a prototype railway to model, then take you through the design and operation of a layout based on thet prototype.
