Description

From Maine to Colorado and the Pacific Northwest, narrow-gauge railroads operated in some of the country's most remote, rugged, and beautiful terrain. Although most have long since been abandoned, modelers have long been fascinated by the diminutive equipment of these lines, with small trains battling tough mountain grades and tight curves as well as the elements.In the Guide to Narrow Gauge Modeling, you'll learn how to take the many high-quality models now available and combine them with prototype knowledge to plan and build your own narrow-gauge layout. You'll discover when, where, and why these two- and three-foot railroads were built, what made them successful, and what caused their demise.In this book, you'll learn about:Where narrow-gauge railroads operatedThe types of locomotives run by these railroadsTypical operations of slim-gauge linesNew models available in several scalesHow to plan and design a narrow-gauge layoutAnd more!
