Simple Model Locomotive Building...introducing LBSC's TICH

£19.99

Product description

This book is based on LBSC's 3.5 inch gauge locomotive, which is said to be one of the best-known of the many locomotives that he built, and serves as an introduction to model loco building for every enthusiast who is interested and perhaps hopes to own a lathe one day.
LBSC's encouragement and simple lucid instructions (adapted into book form from the magazine Model Engineer by its then-editor Martin Evans) should allow the beginner to bring this project to a successful conclusion. For those who do not know, LBSC is the pen-name of a former engineman of the London, Brighton and South Coast Railways who retired to become a shining example to model engineers everywhere. After the usual Foreword and Introduction, the book covers everything from building the running gears to the final details and firing and driving the engine, in 17 simple chapters.
Apart from moderate foxing speckles to the upper edge of the text block the book is in remarkably good condition, with tight binding, clear text on clean pages, bold b/w diagrams and numerous b/w photographs. Although the dust jacket is a little scuffed at the edges it remains vividly colourful and is protected in a library cover. There is a neatly written name and "Crich, August 1972" on the front free end paper.
