This book is a collection of vintage articles on the design and construction model trains and railways, with information on using electricity to power signalling systems, engines, ramps, and much more. Profusely illustrated and full of invaluable tips, this volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in model engineering, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “Locomotive Notes”, “The Gas-Electric”, “A Useful Centring Jig”, “Model L.N.W.R. Locomotive”, “Electricity From Light”, “Some Suggestions for Model Railway Signalling”, “Electric Signals for Single Lines”, “An Electric 'Tell-Tale' for Siding Points”, “Shutting Ramps”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on model building.
