Updates the book published 14 years ago, with more than 25 layouts in various scales and gauges, full of new ideas. Also includes prototypes suitable for small-space models, and photos of scenic details.
Nigel Adams has been a railway modeller for 60 years, and has always been attracted to, and a champion of, small layouts. There is, he says, something immensely satisfying about completing a small layout - although people say 'a layout is never finished', it's not difficult to finish a small one! He also enjoys exhibiting, and a small layout saves hours of setting up and dismantling - he reckons to be on his way home no more than 30 minutes after the exhibition has closed. In the 14 years since Nigel's first book was published, many new small models have been built by him and fellow modellers. This second book updates the original, and allows more room for a much larger 'Small layouts gallery', describing more than 25 layouts in various scales and gauges from which the reader can glean many new ideas. Also included are a selection of prototypes suitable for small-space models and photographs of prototype and model scenic detail, as a small layout is ideal for concentrating on scenic detail. Contents include: Where can I get ideas? Where can I build a layout where I live? Designing small layouts Scenery and scenic detail Rolling stock for small layouts and exhibiting your layout.
