Your Guide to Modelling German Railways

The first railway opened in Germany in 1835, between Nurnberg and Furth. From this small beginning railways quickly spread, assisting economic development. Originally built by private enterprise, then separate state concerns, the railways were nationalised in the mid-1920s. The variety was considerable from local light railways to heavy duty main lines, and eventually a dedicated high speed network with the now iconic ICE trains.

German toy manufacturers soon recognised the appeal of railways and now German companies are world leaders, offering a wide range of models in scales from Z to G; those modelling German railways arguably enjoy the most support of any national scene. This book explores the current state of modelling German railways, with examples of high quality layouts in different scales to illustrate the variety, and ideas for modelling and construction techniques. 111 pages fully illustrated.
