Extra Narrow Gauge Junction

$59.95

Extra Narrow Gauge Junction is a collection of 60 columns that originally appeared in the bi-monthly magazine, NARROW GAUGE AND SHORTLINE Gazette. It brings together the best of author Dick Andrews' stories, musings, and modeling techniques into one conveniant and coherent volume.
Dick often visited Maine's 2-foot-gauge Bridgton & Saco River Railroad in his youth, and when he retired to a nearby farm, he continued to research that railroad. Many of his columns focus on the B&SR and other Maine 2-foot railroads, but his wide-ranging interests also included 3-foot-gauge roads and even some wide-gauge topics.
Dick was active in model railroading - and specifically, narrow gauge modeling - in its earliest days, going back to the late 1940s. Several of the stories collected here describe how he and other pioneers built models in those early days, long before model railroaders had extensive commercial products to rely on.
If you're a fan of the Maine 2-foot-gauge roads, this book is a must-have addition to your library. Or, if you just like narrow gauge railroads and modeling in general, you're in for an engrossing and enjoyable read.
