Here's a book that belongs on your desk or table when you're planning your next model railroad. Or, if you've already started layout construction, it belongs next to the saber saw and the electric drill. Mark it up, paper clip notes to its pages, dill a hole and hang it on the benchwork. Track Planning for Realistic Operation is your indispensable working manual. For real satisfaction you need the two big R's - realism and reliability. Railroad practice in moving freight and passengers efficiently is discussed as interesting and essential background, In later chapters you translate these desires into practical curvature and grade standard for your gauge suitable for your space. The by the squares method developed by author Armstrong makes it easy to determine on paper the best possible mainline arrangement. Handy tables and charts present fundamental trackwork relationships. Chapter 10 gives step-by-step examples. Diagrams in Chapter 11 illustrate layout schemes that have been proven in a variety of situations.
