" I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone starting out in O gauge be they a casual or serious modeller... this book caters to all. I really can't do it any justice with this review - there is so much in there from weathering to ballasting, from clockwork to DCC. Stuart Lloyd - Gauge O Guild. "

" The author knows his subject and covers pretty well every aspect of modelling in Gauge O A-Z.
If you are contemplating going into O Gauge this is most definitely the book for you, and most importantly it is bang up to date if you will excuse the slang. "
