Description

The Welsh narrow gauge railways, with their colourful histories and vital role in local industry, are an extremely popular subject for both railway enthusiasts and modellers. 

This book is for anyone interested in modelling the Welsh narrow gauge railways and includes the historical background to the railways.  It contains useful reference photographs to help achieve accurate and realistic models.

There are full listings of all the tools, equipment and material required.  Step-by-step modelling guides are included with helpful tips and suggestions and finally there is a graduated series of projects, starting with a simple plastic wagon kit and progressing to a complete layout.

The author

Chris Ford has been a modeller since childhood starting with simple plastic and balsa wood kits. By his teens he had become almost exclusively interested in railway modelling and by adulthood he had developed a particular interest in more 'quirky' railway prototypes, especially the narrow gauge lines. Chris has built many model railway layouts over the years both for private home use and for public exhibition display. Most of these layouts have featured in articles published in the model railway press and for two of them he received the Reiner Hendriksen Award for freelance modelling, which is presented each year at the Expo-Narrow Gauge model railway exhibition.
