Making a start in N Gauge, By Richard Bardsley

Book Review:
I've had this book for just about 24 hours now, very interesting book. Covers the subject very well,  lots of sections, each covered well and in depth, but from a very basic prospective to start.

Sadly Kato Unitrack is'nt that well covered probably be cause it's modular and your options with it basically is to click or un click it. But some excellent coverage on using and modifying flexitrack to suit all need and that covers from the very basic, to a advanced level.

Basically as a total beginner I'm finding this book very useful.  With some good ldeas , even with Unitrack layouts.  I'm glad I purchased this book, finding very easy to read by a section over cover to cover.  Certainly opening my eyes to how much has changed since I last had access to a model railway set, and how much more can be done, with Dcc.

I have a copy of the book. I read it cover to cover and found it to be a fascinating read. There are tons of pictures, and things are explained in a very easy to understand way.

I would say this book is a must for the beginner, but I would say there is still useful information inside for people other than beginners, for example, if you have a DC Layout and want information on DCC, different coupling types, fitting decoder chips, different methods for construction of scenery and buildings... the list goes on.

I mentioned this book in a welcome video I did on my youtube channel, link to the video is below
