An Approach to Model Railway Layout Design - Finescale in Small Spaces
This beautifully done handbook, which had a major impact on British model railway building, details how to design and build a finescale model layout for small spaces. The author's aim is to produce a railway that may be modest in size but is fully scenic, built to finescale standards, and capable of realistic operation. Each step, from basic to finishing details, from identifying prototypes to siting the layout, from designing the infrastructure to considering operational details -- are all aimed at making realistic designs regardless of the small size of the layout. Each aspect is explained in clear detail so that your finished design will be both possible to build and of an extremely high standard when done. About half the book is devoted to actual models that have been built following Rice's design principles so the reader can appreciate the beauty of this kind of work. Illustrated throughout with crisp black and white photos, schematic diagrams and line drawings.
