Tony Koester's HO scale Allegheny Midland was a revolutionary model railroad from its development in the early 1970s until its demise in 2000. A pioneer of freelanced prototype modeling, it was the subject of countless magazine articles and columns. In The Allegheny Midland: Lessons Learned, the author reviews the history of this inspirational and influential layout and discusses ideas and features that worked - and some that didn't. Koester explains how the Allegheny Midland came to be, which prototype railroads influenced its planning and design, and how the layout - and the hobby itself - evolved throughout the model railroad's 25 years of existence.
