Abstract:

Fourth in the Realistic Model Railroading series by the same author, this volume shows modelers how to turn to the real thing natural land forms, crops, forests, water features, and even the seasons, to get better results on their model railroad layouts. What are the critical and model-able differences between the Rockies and the Appalachian Mountains, for example, and what resources can help modelers achieve a natural-looking scene from each area? These big ideas are supported by modeling projects as examples of incorporating realistic natural effects including rock strata, water forms, field crops, and space-saving industries.
