19th Century Railway Drawings in 4mm Scale

Regular price £20.00

 In Nineteenth Century Railway Drawings in 4mm Scale, Alan Prior has prepared from a variety of sources a widely representative selection of drawings, all reproduced to the standard British 4mm scale for 00 gauge or the finer scale EM and Protofour derivatives, of locomotives, rolling stock, signalling and track of many companies in the period from the 1820s, as the Stockton & Darlington Railway opened, to the end of the century when Atlantic and 4-6-0 locomotives had just appeared, and bogie coaches were becoming common. Between are a wide variety of locomotives and stock of the early trunk lines, including the Great Western Broad Gauge, and the developments including improved track and signalling of mid-Victorian years. The drawings, which are finely detailed, with dimensions, will provide modellers and students of the Victorian railway scene with a substantial appetiser which, it is hoped, will encourage them to delve more deeply into railways a century ago.
