From Argentina to the Artic Circle, the author has captured scenes of trains at work in colleries, hauling freight, transporting passengers, being services, and at rest in their rusty graveyards/. Here there are the antiques that continue to earn their keep in the canefields of South America as =well as the more recent monsters that poound the tracks of China's railways.Narrow - gauge railways, individualistic and slightly out of this world as thye are, make most attractive models. Sometimes they form the basis of a complete layout, but often they are used as a 'feeder' line to a standard-gauge layour, adding depth and imagination to the fine commercial products available to railway modellers.Published by Tiger Books in 1991 and written by Colin Garratt this book is in excellent condition.
