This series is a good introduction of industries that are common along railroads. The content is concise and some of these books have suggested reading. This should serve to prompt ideas and lead to further research for possibilities according to geographic oriented industries or other industries that may be found anywhere. Decent reads, reasonable cost.
A really useful book, this (and its forerunners) are a great source for ideas, as well as details about various kinds of industries found along the tracks. Many of these are now gone, so anyone who wants to model early eras will find this especially handy.
Jeff Wilson's MODEL RAILROADER'S GUIDE TO INDUSTRIES ALONG THE TRACKS 4 is the fourth book in a popular series for model railroaders offers a fine narrowed focus to layouts that offer realistic appearances beside tracks. Six unique industries that add interest to a model include rock excavating, lumber processing, waterfront operations and more in a survey of the history and operations of these industries served by rail transport. Modelers can re-create these scenes using the photos and modeling tips here. His original 101 Track Plans for Model Railroaders is updated in 101 MORE TRACK PLANS FOR MODEL RAILROADERS. This picks up where his first volume left off with classic layout plans from Model railroader magazine's pages. An outstanding companion, this is a pick for any avid rail modeler.
Fantastic information resource book You couldn't ask for more This is just great and just what was needed. and i am really i made this purchase . Every model railrader should have a copy of this book on their shelf.
Well written. Covers the topics and provides additional links. Helpful photos and occasional track plans of the industry. Will incorporate some of the industries on my new layout.
Very interesting articles. I would not have had the expertise for modeling what I wanted and needed in my layout without this book.
provides a very good set of explanations for a person who is building or wants to build a model railroad
Again great suggestions as to industries to model along with examples of trackage.
