If you are not interested in Patagonia or the South Atlantic Islands,
then read no further.

However this book covers lines from 60cm to 5' 6" gauge.
Animal, wind, steam and diesel powered. 


Track plans shown for some lines,
including a whaling station.

Side elevation plans (30) for rolling stock and locomotives,
from England, Europe, Japan and the United states,
from 0-4-0s to 2-10-2s


Early style bathtub coal cars used (1953),
on 1500 ton coal drags (75 CM gauge) behind 2-10-2

Two of the 2-10-2s are currently being rebuilt for tourist service.

Si.

As just about everyone I know model's typical Canadian or US Railway's,
if narrow gauge, it is either logging or Colorado.

I have a fun time modelling South American Railways, with the variety,
and the look on peoples faces when they try to figure out some of the rolling stock.

It is hard to pick a highlight from the book, as it covers so many varied railway's,
from prisoner run logging railway's,
to the Falkland system, with wind powered passenger car's,
and of course a whaling station.

The variety of motive power and rolling stock,
a lot of suitable idea's for 1:35 scale cars in your case.

A minimum amount of scenery or structure's,
unless you model a whaling station which could be an interesting concept.

With 4 engines in various stages of building,
a Kitson-Meyer 2-6-6-2T,  two Mitsubishi 2-10-2s,  and a Henschel 2-8-2,
I still have a ways to go.

(still without a place to run them)

Best idea is to go through the site, it will keep you busy for a while,
as there is a vast amount of information to see and read.

There has been a FREE PDF book supplement released ...

... that 1 or 2 readers might well know 1 or 2 extra facts & figures ! 


It sounds like the book was very popular & has sold all 1st editions.  :thumb:

I hope you've had your thumb on the pages of yours regularly !

Si.

I do take a look through the book for yet more modelling ideas.

Checked the latest listing for the locomotive lists for all the countries,
thought of downloading the PDFs, until Martin mentioned there were 1600+ pages,
way too much to add to my collection, which I am trying to thin out, rather then add to !

More then enough projects on the go to keep me busy,
still no layout.

:shocked:
