Garden railroading is fun for the whole family! And, by industry accounts, it's the fastest-growing segment of the model railroading hobby. Packed with inspiring colour photos, this book provides an informative and entertaining introduction to the hobby.

Special sections are devoted to motive power and rolling stock, contemporary power and control systems, live steam operations, and maintenance.
