Many railway modellers include an engine shed somewhere on their layout. However, all too often the shed is squeezed into a quite improbable location and is little more than a place to 'park' engines when they are not in use. This well-illustrated and comprehensive book, written by an experienced railway modeller, helps even the beginner to develop a far more realistic approach and to capture the unforgettable grimy but exciting atmosphere of the locomotive shed in the steam era.

Terry Booker has had a lifelong interest in railway modelling. A fervent railway enthusiast in the 1950s, in this book he helps the modeller to recapture in miniature the wonderful sights of those long-since vanished days. Terry provides step-by-step guidance on the construction of both the individual models and the fully detailed diorama settings. He also presents the reader with examples from his own extensive loft-layout, Wessex Lines. This layout has taken over twenty years to build and has featured on video and DVD and on the pages of Railway Modeller and Model Rail.
