Hornby is a household name with a history that goes back over 80 years. This book looks at the Hornby range in depth, and shows how Hornby models can be used to build a model railway layout to suit the space available and all levels of modelling skill. Now completely revised and updated, it is packed with hints and tips for easy layout building, scenic structure modelling, track laying and wiring and extra detailing, and provides ideas for working at the simplest level, including a layout for very young enthusiasts, through to the more experienced modeller. Extra sections relating to recent developments in the hobby are included, along with new photography, new layouts and recent additions to Hornby rolling stock and the Skaledale range.
