'Steam Trains in your Garden' book back in print

Post by GTB » Tue May 07, 2024 12:20 pm

The book 'Steam Trains in your Garden' by Brian Wilson has been out of print for a while now and s/h copies are hard to find.

For those looking for a copy, the book is now obtainable again from the web shop on Wilson Locomotives' new website.

https://www.wilsonlocomotives.com/produ ... ed-edition


This book is what got me into garden railways and building Fn3 live steam locos, as I bought a copy when it was first published a couple of years before I retired. A model modified from the Eric design in this book was my first fully scratchbuilt live steamer and I still use the book as a reference for fittings, etc. This link shows my version of Eric. https://gardenrails.org/viewtopic.php?t=9884

Even if you never build a live steamer, the book is still an interesting read and you can dream........ :study:

Regards,
Graeme

Thanks for the heads up Graeme. Ordered, not that I will ever build one, but a friend is slowly working towards completing one.👍🏻

I dream all right.
Miles-- Trains are fun. With the exception of track power. Argh!
