Great Toy Train Layouts

If you want to build a model railway but feel constricted and frustrated because you only have a very limited amount of space available, then this is the book for you. The author demonstrates that a railway modeller need never be "stuck for space," and shows the reader how to design and construct a rewarding layout in even the smallest of spaces. He emphasizes that once you have found a home for your layout, be it in a garden shed, a spare room, a bookcase or even the top of an ironing board, the same guiding principles apply. These are all fully explained in a very practical way and include the basic layout shapes, the importance of scale, standard and narrow gauges, fiddle yards, train length, curves and turnouts as well as track design elements such as head shunts, kickback sidings and run-round loops.There are individual chapters on:potential spacesdesign principlesbasic layout shapesthe art of compromiselevels, layers and shelvesplanning your layoutbaseboardsclassic designs and micro-layouts.

Electric train sets had been introduced just before the Second World War, and after a hiatus in production during the conflict, burst back onto the scene with great success, led by Hornby with its 00 gauge models. Train sets were available in other gauges and from other manufacturers--most notably Tri-Ang, who merged with Hornby in 1964--and the various box sets, locomotives, rolling stock, buildings, and accessories meant that everyone could form a bespoke layout to suit their budget. This beautifully illustrated introduction to the heyday of electric train sets tells their story from 1938 to 1975, when finer detailing and changing trends led to them being produced for adult model railway enthusiasts rather than children.
