THE MAKING OF THIS BOOK in response to repeated requests, made by all manner of people during the past twenty years, has been one of those unfortunate tasks that are always going to be done, but which repeatedly are postponed-often until it is too late to perform them. In this instance, however, the postponement has doubtless served a useful purpose in that the subject with which the book deals has, during those years of enforced procrastination, been continuously growing and advancing. Railway Modelling has in the meantime become a theme of considerable significance with its hundred thousand devotees in America, its thirty thousand or so in this country, and its extensive following in Europe and the Antipodes. The actual railway described in this history has by this time undergone so many developments and passed through such changeful stages as to have become to a genuine extent typical of scale work. It is the earnest hope of the writer that beginners in this handicraft, as well as those who have long been wedded to it, may find here a real measure of guidance and inspiration.
One further word requires to be added, and it relates to certain modifications which will be apparent to the reader who compares the text and plans with certain photographs. These small discrepancies are accounted for by the fact that the manuscript of the book is slightly older than the photographs, which are the most recent feature. Economies, improvements and a few eliminations have been found advisable as the work has proceeded ; the discovery of these by the reader will possibly add interest to his perusal of these pages.
