009 scale, which is used to represent narrow gauge lines of 2ft to 2ft 6in gauge, is experiencing a steady growth in popularity and trade support. This book provides a detailed insight into railway modelling in this scale.
Narrow Gauge Modelling in 009 Scale explains issues of scale and gauge for narrow gauge models and considers the origins of 009 scale. It outlines the diverse range of prototype narrow gauge railways in Britain and overseas, along with some of the different traditions and practices adopted in various parts of the world.
This book gives practical advice on all aspects of 009 modelling, including:-
How to select a subject to model
Construction of a compact prototypical 009 layout, its locomotives and stock
Control and signalling of layouts
Layout maintenance and improvement
The challenges of exhibiting models
The projects are illustrated throughout with more than 300 photographs and diagrams, and this book provides a detailed, practical guide to 009 modelling techniques.
