You are looking at a book that is no longer in publication. This one is a fantastic resource for anyone, any scale, who loves modeling the most popular era of model railroading, when you can have steam and diesel coexist.
In his all-new book, Modeling the Transition Era, expert modeler Tony Koester takes an in-depth look at the time period (and most popular modeling era) when railroads were changing from steam locomotives to diesel during the 1940s and 1950s. The book includes:
- An overview of the era -- why diesel replaced steam.
- The types of railroad equipment in use.
- A look at typical railroad operations.
The book features a mix of modeling and prototype photos to help you increase the realism and accuracy of your transition-era layout. 114 pages
