Item was better than expected for being a "used" item. Wonderful reference material. A friend had this book and he only paid five bucks for it years ago , wished I had known about it back then.

A very much needed book to add to your collection of how too books,and one that your estate when that day comes will not have any trouble selling to some else to in joy.

This is the best book written on the subject for the layperson and/or model builder. A seminal work, too bad it is out of print. Buy it if you see it!

I own the first edition and the information included in this new version has proved most valuable in building bridges for my customers model trains.

This book is not just for model builders. If you want a book that does a very good job at explaining how railway bridges work and are constructed this is well worth the money
