Making a Start in N Gauge Railway Modelling
Making a Start in N Gauge Railway
N gauge is the most rapidly expanding of all the model railway formats and if you want to take advantage of its huge potential, then Making a Start in N Gauge Railway Modeling is the book for you. The author explains exactly what N gauge is, its history, its advantages and some of its possible disadvantages. He begins with a train set and progresses through choosing a prototype and designing a layout, to a practical demonstration of how to build a baseboard, and designs for open-topped baseboards and fiddle yards. This reference book also includes sections that:- Tell you all you need to know about the different tract products that are available and the differences between sectional and flexible track.- Provide detailed, yet easily understandable, descriptions of how to lay track, cut it to size, join it, and connect it between baseboards.- Explain the terminology of turnouts and the different ways to operate them.- Explore the differences between DC and DCC control, and how to get power to the track.- Consider wiring for turnouts and isolation sections.- Discuss all the types of ballasting and presents comprehensive advice on how to apply and fix loose ballast.- Examine ready-to-run rolling stock available in N gauge as well as kit building and conversion of locomotives to DCC.-...

On the right track!: The history of PIKO N gauge model railways from East Germany
On the right track!: The history of PIKO
Overcoming shortages and poor relations with their Western neighbours through ingenuity and inventiveness, PIKO and other East German companies built up significant N Gauge railway production during the 1960’s. Unsure whether to make simple toys or more detailed and accurate models, PIKO nonetheless produced millions of N Gauge railway sets. This is the story of the development of N gauge model railways in East Germany. It has been written by a model railway enthusiast as a result of his curiosity……The arrival of the first electric N Gauge trains by Arnold and Lone Star and push-along Schiebetrix (precursor to Minitrix) are described, giving an accurate perspective. PIKO was the world's second large producer to begin N-gauge production and the models have some interesting design features.The quality of PIKO's loco, coach and wagon mouldings was at least as good as those from other companies at the time and they remain attractive many years after production ended.The author has had many contacts with model railway enthusiasts in the former East Germany and further afield. Other sources include a former British distributor of PIKO products and an East German service agent. This has yielded a fascinating history of the beginnings of the N-gauge at the time of the Cold War.

Narrow Gauge Modelling in 009 Scale
Narrow Gauge Modelling in 009
The 009 scale, which is used to represent narrow gauge lines of 2ft to 2ft 6in, is experiencing a steady growth in popularity and trade support. Narrow Gauge Modelling in 009 Scale explains issues of scale and gauge for narrow gauge models, considers the origins of 009 scale and identifies some of its pioneers. It outlines the diverse range of prototype narrow gauge railways in Britain and overseas, along with some of the different traditions and practices adopted in different parts of the world.

Weathering for Railway Modellers: Volume 2 - Buildings, Scenery and the Lineside
Weathering for Railway Modellers: Volume 2 - Buildings,
Weathering is not just about making something look dirty. Rather, it should be seen as an artistic endeavour, with the aim of making a model appear as lifelike as possible. It also helps to blend a range of separate structures into a cohesive scene. Careful weathering brings out the best in even the most mundane model, drawing attention to moulded relief and enhancing surface textures. Weathering for Railway Modellers, Volume 2 offers a guide to paints, washes, dry powders and other weathering media; simple techniques for maximizing realism on all types of buildings and structures, and effective methods for weathering road vehicles, machinery and ships.

Weathering for Railway Modellers: Volume 1 - Locomotives and Rolling Stock
Weathering for Railway Modellers: Volume 1 - Locomotives
Once seen as a niche practice, the craft of weathering has now become firmly rooted in the railway modelling mainstream. Not simply a means of rendering models in layers of dirty paint, weathering involves a myriad of techniques aimed at improving realism, including distinctive surface textures, highlights and shading, burnishing and peeling paint finishes. The weathering process brings out the best in a model, making moulded relief or a lustrous livery really stand out. As well as replicating the real world more closely, weathering also helps a model to look at home within a scenic setting. Aimed at modellers of all abilities and eras, this book is an essential guide to creating the most realistic locomotives and rolling stock in any scale. It includes: a guide to tools, paints, washes, dry pigments and other innovative media; the correct techniques for model preparation; a wide range of techniques for wagons, carriages, locomotives and multiple units in any scale; how to replicate authentic surface textures and effects, from polished surfaces to corroded metal and worn timber; how to bring models to life with faded paintwork, peeling and chipped finishes and subtle highlights and shading; the secret to successful airbrushing. This book will be of great interest to railway m...
