Modeling the Transition Era
In Tony Koester's all-new book he takes an in-depth look at the time period (and most popular modeling era) when railroads were changing from steam locomotives to diesel during the 1940s and 1950s. The book covers why diesel replaced steam, the types of railroad equipment in use, and a look at typical railroad operations. The book features a mix of modeling and prototype photos to help you increase the realism and accuracy of your transition-era layout. It contains 112 pages and 180 color photos.
