As the technology available to model railway enthusiasts, in particular Digital Command Control, becomes more sophisticated, so the need for ever more accurate track plans and signalling becomes all the more important. With the publication of this book, modellers can no longer make the excuse that this sort of information is not widely available. Comprehensive and highly detailed, this title will be essential reading for all those endeavouring to recreate in miniature the great days of Britain's railways.

There is little more basic in terms of railway modelling than the accurate replication of track formations and the employment of appropriate signalling arrangements which the track layout dictates. Yet it is in these very areas that many layouts fall flat. Whilst this may be excusable in the case of beginners, it is unforgivable for those constructing layouts for exhibition purposes. Over many years of involvement in the model railway hobby, Bob Essery has seen countless layouts in operation, some good, some indifferent, and some downright appalling. Drawing upon this experience, as well as his own first-hand knowledge of railway operation, gained from his time on the footplate as a fireman for British Railways, few are better placed to write authoritatively on these subjects. This book provides a detailed analysis of the inter-relationship of track, signalling and operation. Using a wide range of examples from the prototype, he explains how this approach can help to make a model railway much more realistic. Comprehensive and highly detailed, this will be essential reading for all those striving to recreate in miniature the great days of Britain's railways. Nº de ref. de la librería 345065
