From the cover: “This well-illustrated, comprehensive book is aimed at all those railway modellers who wish to create a realistic model of a branch line. It contains a vast array of useful information, excellent reference photographs, practical tips, explanations of modelling techniques and a host of exciting modelling ideas.”

  • Examines the origins, development and future of branch lines in Britain
  • Considers where to house the model and demonstrates how it can be located and operated in a relatively small space without losing its appeal
  • Provides useful insights into how to select a suitable branch line to model
  • Discusses in detail how to create scenic realism and an appropriate setting for the model, with reference to the landscape, the infrastructure, the lineside and the use of authentic colour
  • Presents detailed information about a selection of several real, and some fictitious, branch lines in order to inspire the modeller and help him to select a suitable subject to lovingly recreate
  • Contains track plans which, in most cases, are accompanied by superb drawings of the whole scene, including the various railway buildings, thus providing the modeller with a visual interpretation of what the completed model should look like
  • Presents a number of case-study projects, which are illustrated by step-by-step construction photographs
