Wild Swan Authentic Model Railway Operation by Martin Nield AMRO

Wild Swan Authentic Model Railway Operation - Martin Nield AMRO
Wild Swan Publishing - Authentic Model Railway Operation by Martin Nield
When running our model railway layouts it is easy to forget that those train loads of passengers and goods are supposed to be going somewhere and the railway companies had rules, methods and procedures to ensure they got there safely.
"This is a highly readable book which demonstrates and discusses the various ways in which we can make our model railways more realistic from an operational point of view. Although Martin himself is a confirmed Lancashire and Yorkshire modeller, the whole book applies to any British railway operation right up until the end of the "traditional" railway in the Nineteen Eighties. The illustrations are really good, crisp and clear shots of various relevant model railways, nice relevant paperwork and ephemera and proper inspiring "Northern Grit" prototype photographs. I think thet text is perfectly balanced between not baffling a "beginner" whilst still providing much of interest to a more experienced modeller. I hope this book does well, because traditional railway operation is rapidly becoming ancient history, and there has been relatively little published on the subject in recent years."

Wild Swan Creating Cameo Layouts by Iain Rice Cameo

Wild Swan Creating Cameo Layouts - Iain Rice Cameo
Wild Swan Publishing - Creating Cameo Layouts by Iain Rics
Cameo layouts are designed to depict one small scene providing both a setting for the display of trains and an interesting operational layout. Careful design will result in a satisfying model railway within a surprisingly small footprint.
A definite suggested read for modellers who have a new ready to run O gauge loco!
"A well crafted miniature in a complimentary setting" is the sense in which Cameo is being considered here, or as Iain goes on to say; a layout that does not require a dedicated site, is easy to move and store, doesn't look out of place in a domestic setting and is a breeze to take to exhibitions. Rather more than the arguably overdone "shunting plank" in a new suit of MDF, these small self contained layouts really can offer an objective in their own right, and need not be mere substitutes for something bigger. I think Iain argues his case very convicingly, backing up his concept with a wealth of practical experience and numerous useful techniques and ideas, all properly set into the context of finescale modelling since the mid 1980s. As a reader I really felt I "owned" this book and as am now highly motivated to create my own interpretation of a cameo. I hope this book will make other readers feel the same and maybe even result in some of us creating satisfying model railways which will deliver heavily in the fruits of success and enjoyment. This perhaps instead of pursuing grandiose schemes, which are in reality unlikely to produce many crates of lemons for the amount of effort they may well involve...

Wild Swan 7mm Modelling Part Two Building a Layout Gordon Gravett 1874103577

Wild Swan 7mm Modelling Part Two Building a Layout Gordon Gravett 1874103577
You could almost delete the 7mm part from the title of Gordon Gravetts' second volume, the inspiration, ideas, information and methods can be applied irrespective of your scale and gauge!

A definite emphasis is placed on small size for most of these O gauge model railway ideas. Interesting detail and operation is? promoted above the classic mainline railway to create realism and practical operation of large scale trains in the family home.

Highly recommended for modellers seeking to recreate a small but realistic part of the railway network, whatever your modelling scale.

Crowood Press Modelling Narrow Gauge Railways in Small Scales by Chris Ford 97682
Modelling Narrow Gauge Railways in Small Scales by Chris Ford

This invaluable book is essential reading for all those who wish to build a small, narrow gauge model railway layout to a high standard. Comprehensive in its coverage, the book begins with a useful summary of the history and development of narrow gauge railways in the British Isles, and this is followed by a detailed, but easily digestible, consideration of the complex and wide choice of scales available to the modeller.

In subsequent chapters, the author covers construction, including materials and tools, skills and techniques, layout design, laying the track, scenic modelling, painting, soldering and wiring, as well as the construction of narrow gauge stock and appropriate buildings. The author provides clear, step-by-step instructions and photographs to show the reader how to build a straightforward narrow gauge model of a fictitious late 19th to early 20th century light railway in 4mm scale on 9mm track.

Crowood Press Modelling Railway Stations - A Practical Guide by Ian Lamb 97683

Crowood Press Modelling Railway Stations - A Practical Guide by Ian Lamb 97683
976-83 - Modelling Railway Stations - A Practical Guide
Have you ever dreamed of building a model of a favourite railway station for your layout, whether it be a modest branch line station, or a large town terminus? Have you ever wanted to re-create a beautiful station that you have seen at a railway modelling exhibition, or in a magazine, and felt that you needed a helping hand? If so, this is the book for you.

Ian Lamb, a modeller of enormous experience, demonstrates how anybody, regardless of their modelling skills, can construct a pleasing and presentable model railway station in a limited amount of space. Six specific UK stations, some real and some fictional, are selected as modelling case studies and the author provides detailed, practical information about different aspects of their construction. Throughout the book the author provides step-by-step guidance and illustrations and emphasizes how - with patience- modelling skills, confidence and ambition can all be improved over time. Moreover, he is ever mindful of how costs should be kept down to reasonable levels and reveals how materials and tools can often be the most simple and inexpensive of everyday household items.

A carpenter by trade, he has been demonstrating and teaching his landscape modelling skills at model railways shows since the early 1980s. He has written numerous articles on the subject and undertakes commisioons for bespoke trees and dioramas. This is his second book on landscaping for model railways.

Softback, 160 pages, extensively illustrated.

Peco Guide to N Gauge Railway Modelling PM-204

Peco Guide to N Gauge Railway Modelling PM-204
N gauge is popular amongst railway modellers second only to OO/HO scale. At roughly half the scale of OO/HO the opportunities offered to people with limited space are wide ranging.
Of course, to build a railway in a wider landscaped setting in N gauge does also offer an alternative approach. Whatever the choice, the scale is strongly supported by manufacturers, including PECO of course, and this new publication guides a new modeller into the miniature world of N scale, as well as informing and enlightening the seasoned modeller, who can always learn something new!
With 124 full colour pages, including perfect bound covers, the story of N gauge is told, starting with a history lesson, followed by chapters covering subjects such as inspirational layouts, layout design, track plans, and various project layouts, including Stenson, a new N gauge layout built for the PECO exhibition stand.

Silver Link Publishing Creative Scenic Modelling by John Parkinson 9781857943528

John Parkinson is a self-confessed scenery nut. While for many people the tracks and trains are the most important element of a model railway layout John revels in creating the scenic environment, which is complemented by the trains running through it. With all his layouts his aim is to make a scene that gels, that looks like a composite whole and is full of atmosphere.

In his entertaining narrative he describes how he has developed his modelling skills and shares the techniques he has used for almost 30 years for his many popular, compact, small scale exhibition layouts. Covering baseboard construction and creating the scenic 'hard shell', hints on representing natural terrain, foliage, water, buildings, bridges, tunnels and the like to detailing and finishing touches - all illustarted by more than 185 colour photographs - this book is sure to inspire and instruct in equal measure.
