This book is an introduction to the smaller scales but is not aimed at the complete beginner. The basics of wiring, building baseboards, laying track and so on are easily found elsewhere; this book is concerned with matters specific to the modelling of narrow gauge railways - their appeal, the pitfalls, the problems, and most importantly, the delights of this particularly fascinating corner of the model railway hobby. After an Introduction to the subject the author looks at Scales and Gauges, Prototypes, Modelling Narrow Gauge Railways, Track, Couplings, Narrow Gauge Locomotive Kits, Narrow Gauge Layouts and Sources of Information.
Softcover, 70 pages, 145 b/w, 16 colour illustrations, 12 plans and drawings.
