From the cover: “Many railway modellers include an engine shed somewhere on their layout. However, all too often the shed is squeezed into a quite improbable location and is little more than a place to ‘park’ engines when they are not in use. This well-illustrated and comprehensive book, written by an experienced railway modeller, helps even the beginner to develop a far more realistic approach and to capture the unforgettable grimy but exciting atmosphere of the locomotive shed in the steam era.

  • Covers all types of engine shed, from the branch line sub-shed to the main line motive power depot
  • Discusses research, planning, the building processes, readily available materials and simple tools
  • Explains how to obtain the very best from kits, how to site and operate sheds, and how to make them look authentic
  • Demonstrates the construction of over a dozen kits, including off-the-shelf versions and the newest computer downloads
  • Shows the modeller how to create special dioramas depicting the whole shed scene and how to scratch-build complete sheds, including coal stages and other infrastructure
  • Provides advice for those with a limited amount of space, contains ‘top tips’ and is budget-conscious throughout
This remarkable book is essential reading for modellers of all abilities who wish to incorporate a realistic locomotive shed into their layout.”
