Model Railroad Layout Help
For Any Problem Right On Your Desk

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old,
We grow old because we stop playing”

George Bernard Shaw

When I was building my N-in-a-shed layout it took a library, magazines and multiple model railroading books to research and find solutions to the problems that came up almost weekly.

Even after I had been at it for a while research was something I had to leave the shed to do for the answers. Sometimes I couldn’t find them and plowed ahead on my own. 

For example, my poor planning got me into a box when I had to raise the level of a crossover track three inches in two feet to clear boxcar height on the mainline making for a near intolerable grade. 

Just one look inside “Model Railroad Help” by Robert Anderson and I’d have found the answer on page 17 of the first of six sections making up over 200 pages. 

And this is in a downloadable ebook. 

I’ve found out Anderson knows what he is talking about and I’m not alone coming to that conclusion: 

"After spending all last week trying to figure out why my trains kept stopping, I'm so relieved I found your book on Google. There, staring me in the face on page 114 was the solution. I could have saved myself countless hours of frustration. It is an excellent resource that more than paid for itself with this one answer. I'm very grateful thanks!"    Phillip H, Canada 

When I began my N scale layout in a shed, the idea was to have fun and not end up slaving for hours at a time dealing with time-wasting problems like trying to figure out grades and percentage ratios and then trying to figure out how to correct the mistakes with expensive cures.

Scenery was my bag, it is one of the modeling elements I enjoy most, trying to duplicate my natural surroundings in miniature. I found in Anderson’s ebook some of the neatest techniques for creating granite cliffs without the weight of plaster. That will be important for the NTRAK module I am planning. Plaster mountains don’t travel very well.

Listen carefully, because here is the key. To save yourself money, time and frustration, it is important to do things correctly. Afterall, your ultimate objective is to create a model train layout you'll be supremely proud of... a custom designed train layout that can be enjoyed not only by yourself, but by friends and family too!
