Modelling the Great Western Branch Lines

Chris Ford
Modelling the Great Western Branch Lines is essential reading for all those who wish to build a model railway based on the branch lines of the Great Western Railway. The author guides the modeller through projects which are graded from simple to more advance. Each step is clearly described, explaining the techniques used and how alternative methods and materials could be employed. Topics covered include an historical overview of the subject; full listings of all tools and materials; a series of detailed model projects using the best of the currently available commercial model making products; an introduction to scratch-building lineside terms and, finally, suggestions as to how each project could be further developed.

About the author

Chris Ford has been a modeller since childhood, starting with simple plastic and balsa wood kits. By his teens he had become almost exclusively interested in railway modelling. Chris has built many model railway layouts over the years both for home use and public exhibition display. Most of these layouts have featured in the model railway press and two have won the coveted Reiner Hendriksen award. This is Chris's third book for Crowood, following his acclaimed Modelling Narrow Gauge Railways in Small Scales and Modelling the Southern Region 1948 to the Present.
