From the cover: “Narrow-gauge railways, individualistic and slightly out of this world as they are, make most attractive models. Sometimes they form the basis of a complete layout, but often they are used as a ‘feeder’ line to a standard-gauge layout, adding depth and imagination to the fine commercial products available to railway modellers.

The author, who is one of the best known narrow-gauge modellers in the country and who was secretary of the Model Railway Club, has written a comprehensive book on the subject. He describes how to lay the track, and how to build the rolling stock and locomotives, illustrated by some first-rate drawings and photographs. He writes on the subject from his personal experience and this book is likely to be regarded as the standard work on narrow-gauge modelling for many years to come.

The book is practical and it is authoritative, yet Mr. Boreham has contrived to write most entertainingly and will be read with enjoyment by many whose wish to build narrow-gauge models never quite goes beyond the drawing board stage. This second edition is fully revised and updated and is considerably expanded in length to take in all recent developments.”
