Model Railway Layout, Construction and Design Techniques Paperback


Layout building is perhaps the most exciting, rewarding and challenging aspect of creating a model railway.

Making the right design decisions and choosing good construction techniques are vital to ensure success.

This book takes you through basic baseboard construction, shelf layout themes and how to link multi-deck designs together, enabling you to make the most of a given space.

With different concepts covered, from simple portable layouts to helix construction techniques, Nigel Burkin mixes the best of British layouts with those used routinely overseas and shows you how you too can achieve success and satisfaction in executing your layout design.
