Model Trains for Beginners
Model Trains for Beginners is my # 1 choice - I give it a 5/5 star rating.
It is a “must have” book for all beginners to model trains.
It is rock-solid, high-quality information for the beginner model railroader.
There is an unbelievable amount of useful information in this ebook - even an advanced modeler (like myself) needs to know and be reminded of the basics.
I use this ebook almost daily, and that’s after years of experience.
This ebook is packed to the brim with step by step information that can be used for your entire model train lifetime.
It covers the basics from the ground up - the language of model trains, how to plan, design and create great layouts that are easy to run and problem free.
It also covers advanced realism techniques like weathering, making your layout look dated, controllers, and tips for those people that are not Electricians.
It is very well priced (in fact, it’s a steal), as you would not typically find this amount of condensed, straight to the point information in one book.
You would need to buy 4 or 5 books to get the equivalent amount of information.
It also comes with 5 bonuses worth over $108.00… that makes the investment well worth it.
Model Train Help
While Model Trains for Beginners was the perfect resource for beginners, Model Train Help is the perfect resource for intermediate to advanced model railroaders.
It is a detailed 200+ page ebook packed to the brim with detailed technical solutions.
While beginners might find this ebook overwhelming, the intermediate to advanced model railroader will find the information incredibly useful.
It covers everything from the language of model trains to planning, designing and creating great layouts that are easy to run and problem free.
My Parting Thoughts...
Many years ago I used to build bridges, rivers, and landscapes without referring to a book, until I realized how much extra time and money it was costing me - not to mention the frustration and the fact that they never looked real!
Both these ebooks will give a complete step by step plan and in my opinion are absolute must haves.
