Haynes Garden Railway Manual

A Passion for Steam - £29.95

A Passion for Steam uses a significant section of the extensive Horovitz collection of steam locomotives to provide a photographic panorama of ‘garden size’ steam railway locomotion in all scales, complete with a potted biography and technical details of each model. This book not only traces the post-war development of commercial small-scale steam but also provides a full and accessible explanation of just how the various types of model actually function. To this end the first section of this authoritative work uses accurate and colourful CAD diagrams that, together with pertinent photography and informed text, provides information in a way that is not only very accessible for the new live steamer but a work of reference that will find a place in every hobbyist’s bookcase.
