A Railway Modeller's Picture Library A Sourcebook of Prototype Material

Publisher's Synopsis

Although the railway modeller is well served with information about locomotives and rolling stock, there is less published on all those other aspects of railways- such as station design, signalling, lineside signs, level crossings, etc- that were and are an essential part of the whole railway environment.  It is sometimes possible to glean some data from the margins of another photograph, but close-up photographic evidence of the nature of water troughs, for example, is scarce.  And yet, without this sort of information , it is not easy to construct an authentic railway scene.   'A Railway Modeller's Picture Library' is designed to plug this gap; within its pages the reader will find a superb photographic selection of some 550 images portraying a whole range of the ancillary equipment without which it would have been impossible for the railways to operate.  Compiled by Chris Leighwho, as the former editor of 'Model Railway Constructor' and noted railway modeller, is ideally places to appreciate the type of material that the modeller requires for reference, this book brings together an indispensable photographic survey that should be on the shelves of all railway modellers.
