Aspects of Modelling: Lineside Buildings
This latest addition to the hugely popular Aspects of Modelling series gives the reader an authentic sense of how the building of a railway altered both the growth and appearance of the town or village through which it ran. In the late 19th and early 2th centuries, the growth of rail travel encouraged the construction of similar houses arranged in lines following the railways, built from mass-produced and standardised components - often at variance with local building materials.
In Lineside Buildings, author Nigel Digby describes the numerous ways of setting railway models in place and time. In his own words, 'The buildings and structures have their own tales to tell, not only about the owning company but also about when and how the line was built. One can make a checklist of features that will help in the construction of a realistic model, or in understanding the features of a location that the modeller wishes to reproduce in miniature.'
