The Welsh narrow gauge railways, with their colourful histories and vital role in local industry, are an extremely popular subject for both railway enthusiasts and modellers. This book is for anyone interested in modelling the Welsh narrow gauge railways and includes the historical background to the railways; useful reference photographs to help achieve accurate and realistic models; full listings of all the tools, equipment and material required, and, finally, step-by-step modelling guides with helpful tips and suggestions. A graduated series of projects, starting with a simple plastic wagon kit and progressing to a complete layout is also included.

To sum up, this is a nice well-compiled book for someone beginning in narrow gauge, with clear advice and an abundance of good photographs. This book achieves what it sets out to do and gives a most thorough insight into modelling all aspects of the Welsh narrow-gauge passenger lines. It is also well illustrated with over 200 photographs, all in colour. It’s pleasingly accurate over detail. The fact that the FR is such an attractive line to model, and is thus so popular, is no surprise, but does add to the appeal of this book. Thoroughly recommended. In your deputy editor’s opinion, the book is just what’s been needed – it’s akin to a bible for modelling in OO9. In addition to providing guidance in simple, easy to understand terms, it will doubtless inspire readers to take a fresh look at their layouts, adding details which may not have occurred to them previously - remembering the old adage that a model railway layout is never finished! Essential for narrow gauge modellers.
