The HO Model Railroading HandbookBook - 1998
The 3rd Edition of the HO Model Railroading Handbook includes step-by-step instructions for building your choice of two tabletop model railroads empires. Or, learn how to enjoy those trains by simply setting them up on the floor with movable scenery and buildings. Model railroading is easier than ever, thanks to a host of new techniques, materials and products that are all available to you. Use hands-on techniques in this book to learn the quick and easy way to: use the new HO track and roadbed that snaps securely together; design your own layout with the actual track pieces; connect two wires to run as many as 10 trains on one track; build a lightweight table from common blue insulation foam panels and plywood; cover square yards of your layout with breathtakingly realistic grass-that-grows; install bridges and build tunnels; operate like a real railroad with waybill cards and a sequence timetable; and trouble-shoot and repair locomotives, cars and track.
