The Design of Small Model Railways

References

I said before, there’s not much to find on the internet about designing model railways. The most is still published on paper. Therefor I’ve added a list of literature references. These books gave me lots of inspiration for the plans published on this pages. The pictures of the covers are obtained from Google books.
