Model Railroads By Brian Hollingsworth Dust Jacket 1981 192 Pages
More than 200 years ago the first model steam locomotive was set in motion - this event occurred more than 20 years before the first full-sized locomotive began to operate. Since that time, model and miniature railroads and locomotives have increased in number, sizes and types, and enjoy ever-increasing popularity. Whatever his particular interest, the model-railroad enthusiast will find something of interest in this volume, whether he is interested in the history of model railroads, layouts, the operation of a complete system or methods of construction. Among the subjects covered are the origins of railroad modelling, firms which have played and still play such an important part in the hobby, the question of gauge and scale, layout and track, signals, track-side buildings and landscape, outdoor and garden railroads and, of course, operations - the secret of working verisimilitude.
Brian Hollingsworth analyzes the whole range of models and miniatures from the smallest (1/220th full size) where the locomotive weighs less than one ounce, to the largest (half full size) where the locomotive weighs several tons. It is the aim of Model Railroads to describe in as much detail as possible the current state of the art. Lavishly illustrated throughout, Model Railroads should appeal to modellers of all ages at all levels of expertise.
