Locomotive Construction

From Scratch and Etched Kits - Part Two
Geoff Holt

Softback  -  144 pages  -  £26.95


This is the second of two volumes written by the late Geoff Holt which, taken together, cover his approach to model locomotive building. The books form a practical guide to the techniques and methods used by Geoff over many years for creating scratch-building and kit-built locomotives.

Volume One started with a general introduction to tools, materials and techniques and then progressed to building the 'below the running plate' components - frames, suspension, valve gear, etc. This book covers the rest of the locomotive build. As with Volume One, it is illustrated throughout with colour photographs and numerous sketches and line drawings.
