Follow the construction of a model railroad layout from start to finish! Over the course of three years, Model Railroader Senior Editor David Popp offered readers a monthly 'Step by Step' glimpse into his N scale Naugatuck River Valley layout as he built the layout from the ground up.

Now he tells the complete construction story using techniques any model railroader can use! More than 30 short projects take modelers through the process, from building benchwork to operating realistically. Step-by-step photographs and illustrations let modelers see every phase of construction and apply the techniques to their own projects. Project topics include getting the layout started, building benchwork, completing trackwork and wiring, constructing scenery, adding structures, detailing, and running the railroad. Includes new material on choosing a scale, working in the available space, and installing DCC decoders.

Chapters: 1. Getting your layout started;
2. Building benchwork & adding backdrops;
3. Completing trackwork, wiring, and DCC;
4. Constructing scenery;
5. Building structures;
6. Detailing your model railroad, inside and out.
