STEAMING INYOUR GARDENS TEAMING INYOUR GARDEN
A comprehensive introduction to the joys and mysteries of live steam operation in the garden
A comprehensive introduction to the joys and mysteries of live steam operation in the garden In this lavishly illustrated book, well-known exponents of the different types of steam powered garden railway locomotives readily available in the 21st century, will cast an eye over the history of model live stream motive power and also present the different ways of undertaking this engrossing hobby. You will be taken through the anatomy of the different types of small-scale steamer, ranging from the mainline magnificence of standard gauge express locomotion in gauge 1, through to the Arcadian delights of narrow gauge tank engines running on bucolic narrow gauge rails. The mysteries of scale and gauge and their bearing on steam motive power are discussed here, together with suggestions on the most suitable way forward to suit both individual circumstances and pocket book.
Tag Gorton brings his usual flair and humour to this engrossing aspect of the hobby that is garden railways, with additional expert contributions from David Pinniger and Dick Moger.
