Writer Brian Lambert writes: “My hobby has been sample trains for many years since I got a Tri-Ang train for Princess Elizabeth for Christmas as an eight-year-old.
“Over the years I have acquired a great deal of knowledge in modeling from practical experience and belonging to model train clubs, apart from the wealth of knowledge gained in working on the‘ real thing ’from a young post-school boy to my retirement.
“My first book published, The New Guide to Train Models (ISBN 98-1-85794-329-0) was, it has been said, very popular and has given many readers a great hand in helping with their hobby. Without covering the same ground too much.
“While in these pages I write about generic items and often refer to the real thing, there are many regional variations, and they can not be taken into account in this book. Therefore I recommend, before starting any regional or age-based project, to do a lot of research to get the right facts “Internet searches, books and possibly visits to reserved railways or the national network will usually reveal a lot of details.”
