In his all-new book, Modeling the Transition Era, expert modeler Tony Koester takes an in-depth look at the time period (and most popular modeling era) when railroads were changing from steam locomotives to diesel during the 1940s and 1950s. The book includes:
- An overview of the era — why diesel replaced steam.
- The types of railroad equipment in use.
- A look at typical railroad operations.
The book features a mix of modeling and prototype photos to help you increase the realism and accuracy of your transition-era layout.
