Model Railroads The Complete Guide to Designing Building and Operating a Model Railroad By Cyril Freezer Dust Jacket 1991  96 Pages
Design and build your own miniature world.
Written by the editor of a leading railroad modeling magazine, Model Railroads shows you how to transform the simplest children's train set into a fully operational layout, complete with buildings and scenery.
The real stars of any model railroad are, of course, the locomotives and rolling stock, and the author helps you choose from among the international selection of electric, diesel, and steam models now available. He discusses the pros and cons of various scales and gauges, as well as how they relate to their full-size counterparts around the world, from the sugar-cane railroads of Fiji to the narrow-gauge Alpine lines in Switzerland.
A variety of plans for adapting a spare room, attic, or garage to accommodate your layout is included. When you're ready to begin construction, you'll find helpful descriptions of the simple tools and basic carpentry techniques needed to build a model platform that can be easily stored. Track-laying is also clearly explained, with full-color diagrams that will help you master the intricacies of ties, points, loops, turn-outs, and gradients.
Your choice of trains may determine the setting of your railroad, so this book shows how to construct hillsides, cliffs, and waterfalls as well as fences, houses, and station buildings. Step-by-step wiring instructions and straightforward control-panel designs are provided with the novice in mind.
Brimming with inspiring photographs of working layouts, Model Railroads is the ideal starting point on a trip to the enthralling hobby of model railroads.
