Essential advice on achieving realistic mountain operation is included, along with tips for working relevant scenery into the layout.

Choose the correct locomotives and rolling stock for realistic mountain railroad operation. Learn how to model a forested mountainside, bridges, rock outcroppings, and more. Study dozens of existing mountain layout photos for inspiration.
