Description - Modelling Signal Boxes for Railway Layouts by Terry Booker

It is hard to imagine a model railway layout without a signal box somewhere along the line. they were, after all, the most numerous of the steam-era buildings, and some were almost as old as the railways themselves, dating back to the mid-1800s. With the increased availability of signal box kits and ready-to-site versions, this book provides an invaluable and timely guide to just which box is right for your layout. AUTHOR: Terry Booker puts a lifetime of experience as both a modeller and ardent railway enthusiast into this third book for Crowood. His highly accliamed loft-layout, Wessex Lines, has featured on video, DVD and on the pages of Railway Modeller and Model Rail. Born at the outbreak of the Second World War, he happily admits to adopting the 'war-baby' philosophy of making and adapting things for yourself to replace a trip to the shops. SELLING POINTS: A comprehensive and timely guide to providing information on which signal box kit is right for your railway layout. Essential reference for railway modellers of varying abilities, particularly those interested in the steam era. Features more than twenty model signal boxes in actual layout locations.
