Here is a book full of fresh, fascinating material on the home construction of model railroad accessories by the author of the popular "The Boys' Book of Model Railroading." From such readily available materials as bits of cardboard and wood, paper, spools, hairpins, paper clips, sand, pebbles, tacks, and similar items, Mr. Yates tells how to make a coal pocket for a model town, how to set up "dry" and "wet" water lakes, how to construct storage tanks, stations, a factory, towers, bridges, culverts, telegraph lines, and other accessories that no model town is complete without. There are suggestions for additional items that the enterprising, imaginative boy can design and make for himself, starting from scratch. And there are chapters on how to telegraph your train dispatches, on whistle and hand signals and train markers, on how to go about setting up a timetable for a model railroad, and on selecting the right track layout. With the aid of clear and simple instructions and many drawings and diagrams, model railroad enthusiasts, young and old, will be able to expand and beautify their Model towns at little or no expense, and will have many happy and profitable hours doing it.
