While model railroaders seek realism in their layouts, the process can often be time-consuming. Model Railroading from Prototype to Layout shows how to capture the flavor of a real railroad without getting sidetracked by detail.

Using Tony Koester's expert advice before and during construction of a layout, modelers can sharpen their focus, saving time, money, and even space. Topics include choosing a prototype, setting the time period, planning structures and scenes, selecting locomotives and rolling stock, designing the layout, and planning rail operations.

A great reference book to guide and inspire modelers of all levels. This book shows how to take signature elements of a railroad and adapt them to one's own layout. Written conversationally by one of the most respected names in model railroading
