European railways are characterized by a huge and contrasting range of locomotives, liveries, rolling stock, stations and infrastructure. In addition, the network incorporates standard, narrow and broad gauges, private and nationalized railways, high-speed corridors, single-track branch lines and rack systems.
If that was not appealing enough for the railway modeller, these fascinating railways are also located in dramatically diverse landscapes ranging from the industrial Ruhr to the majestic Alps.
If you wish to explore the new and exciting railway modelling opportunities that Europe has to offer, if you need a helping hand about where to go, what to read and what to buy, then this is the book for you.
