Model railroading is a time-honored hobby enjoyed by countless passionate enthusiasts who continuously endeavor to make their miniature trains and tracks more and more realistic, to the point of creating vast set-pieces that replicate real locations. For some, the pursuit of this technically challenging pastime is constrained by one problem, namely the lack of space, as confined areas can hinder the construction of model railroads. Author and hobbyist Mike J. Scheerens has developed a creative solution to these limits, however, which he presents in Apartment Model Trains.
"My model trains mostly sat in boxes until I did what I showed in this book," Scheerens shares. His book presents an alternate approach for doing model trains, complete with illustrations showcasing his very own feats of model railway engineering. Instead of a conventional board with an oval and a few switch tracks, hobbyists can use the author's unique method to create much larger tracks while taking up less space. This innovative and efficient arrangement allows enthusiasts to create without having their vision limited, and is extremely useful in enabling them to pursue their passions despite being in less spacious environments.
Apartment Model Trains is an invaluable guide for hobbyists to continue having fun with their pastime despite being in places too confined for conventional model train layouts. Dedicated adherents of model railroading and those seeking to get into the hobby will definitely have their railroading experience enhanced by Scheerens' imaginative work.
This book will be featured at the 2013 Beijing Book Fair in Beijing, China, on August 28 - September 2, 2013.
