    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.

    Railway Modeller Book of N Gauge Track Plans

    From the earliest days of N it has been the practice to take plans drawn for 00 and halve the dimensions to arrive at a suitable layout for N. Whereas up to a point this works, it does not take into account factors such as the space needed for operating areas nor the normal reach of the operator. This selection of 20 track plans designed with N gauge in mind takes these and many other issues into account to exploit the possibilities presented by this compact scale.
