An accessible yet comprehensive introduction to model railroading, this slim volume provides a quick overview while also offering a good level of detail to help the beginner get started. It also features countless high quality photographs. It covers everything from selecting a scale and period, planning track layout, building supporting benchwork, laying track, wiring, and choosing locomotives and rolling stock. It also includes some useful general carpentry and electrical information along the way. Highly recommended.

Great book and part where benchwork is discussed was very helpful, which is where I am with setting up my model RR. Good information with illustrations that improved my understanding and ability. Recommend especially for beginners.
