-The Midwest Book Review

Among model railroad enthusiasts, the popularity of N Scale continues to grow. Its small size scale appeals to modelers with limited space, as well as to those who want to pack more operation into a larger area. Now, getting started in the N Scale hobby is easier, thanks to N Scale Railroading from Kalmbach Publishing. In this second edition, author Marty McGuirk acknowledges the numerous advances in N scale railroading since the first edition. He addresses them all, from track to train control. Then, he takes beginners through step-by-step chapters that show how to build and operate a complete N scale 4 x 8-foot railroad. In addition, model railroaders will learn about grades, lighting, and presentation, flextrack, DCC and turnouts, designing scenery, benchwork, and structures.
