Your Guide to Modelling French Railways

France is a land of rail contrasts; the popular image of a local train ambling through the countryside has long since given way to the smart, speedy TVG.

In places the landscape required impressive feats of civil engineering, even on the secondary routes, which meandered cross-country between the busy mainlines.

Nowadays unique tourist railways add to the appeal.

Here is just a small selection to inform and inspire.

Your Guide to Modelling Swiss Railways

Swiss railways have a special attraction for many enthusiasts, even if they do not model continental railways. The intense network of lines, volume of traffic, and seemingly endless variety of companies and liveries complements the incredibly attractive Alpine scenery so often associated with the railways of this land-locked country. 

Comprising 124 perfect-bound pages, this softback book has a wide selection of articles, featuring layouts, modelling articles and prototype inspiration. Metre gauge railways are a well known feature of this country, so the articles on the routes of the MIB, Furka Oberalp and Rhatische Bahn will come as no surprise!
