It discusses in detail how to create scenic realism and an appropriate setting for the model, with reference to the landscape, the infrastructure, the line side and the use of authentic colour.

Detailed information about a selection of several real, and some fictitious, branch lines are presented in order to inspire the modeller and help him to select a suitable subject to lovingly recreate.

Finally, track plans and superb drawings of the whole scene are shown which provides the modeller with a visual interpretation of what the completed model should look like.
