A collection of three programmes on how to build model railways.
A Lineside Look at Model Railways This first 'Lineside Look' has enjoyed great success in this country and abroad. Here Bob Symes provides guided tours around detailed and accurate layouts including: Borchester Market, Bromford and High Peak, Chiltern Green and many others. Plus, in this programme, Shirley Rowe describes her own method of making realistic looking trees.
Another Lineside Look at Model Railways In this second volume of 'Lineside Look', Bob Symes once again takes us around more well known layouts: Combe Mellin, Asdon and Midport, Wheal Louise, Port Sanford, Petherick and Filisur are all featured. Beautifully photographed, this informative programme will not only inspire and encourage the model maker, but also provide entertainment for those who just enjoy watching trains. Also in the programme, Barry Norman reveals some of his techniques in building up scenery.
How to Build a Model Railway Watching something being done is often the best way of learning. In approximately 45 minutes you will learn many of the arts of building a model railway layout, from a baseboard construction for running trains at three levels, right through to the detailing of scenic dressings and coverings. Bob Symes presents a stage-by-stage guide as Dave Lowry constructs his own design of an 'N' gauge layout, from off the shelf track, scenic materials and ready-to-run locos and stock.
