This book is about one ordinary person’s efforts, largely carried out single-handedly and with limited funds, to build a model railway layout in his garden that runs just like the real thing.


It is based on Brymbo in North Wales, where the GWR and LNER were joined by the LMS in the search for mineral wealth. Allen Jackson’s recreation runs between three sheds and features empty and loaded coal trains travelling from colliery to steelworks; pickup goods; branch passenger and excursion traffic; and even its very own CCTV and system to aid signalling.


Packed with wonderful illustrations including photographs and layout diagrams, this book is a wonderful tribute to a lifetime’s hobby and will delight railway modellers both young and old.
