About the Author  144

All the action that brings delight and amusement to railroaders of all ages.
The railroading empire you design is all yours, and it relies on no one's
imagination but your own!
?A railroad cop chases a hobo around and around the packing crates of a gondola car, with no hope of ever catching him. Logs, barrels, and coal are dumped from their special cars into waiting accessories which convey them to new locations on the layout. A big gantry crane swivels its magnet into place to dump scrap steel into gondolas at the wrecking yard. A milkman delivers cans of milk onto a platform, and cows and horses move in and out of their corrals and cars. Crossing gates descend and a minature gateman swinging his lantern greets the oncoming train.
?With the chugging of locomotives and the blinking lights, enter into Roland LaVoie's fascinating world of Lionel Trains. Here is the how-to book that will give you the skills to become an engineer in your own home!
The history of the company and the trains that
sparked the imagination of millions of
children as they traveled down the rails of
America's dream machines.
How to solve sticky wiring problems.
Repair and maintenance hints.
How to craft authentic detailed scenery
and decorations.
Techniques of layout design and tricks of
realistic track work.
Advanced projects by thirteen railroading and
design experts.
An annotated bibliography.
A glossary of real and model railroading terms.
Fifty color photographs of beautiful, detailed layouts and trains.
