Overview

Junctions are centers of activity on real railroads, making them ideal locations to re-create on a model railroad. The Model Railroader's Guide to Junctions takes an in-depth look at prototype crossings, diverging routes, and many other types of junctions, using photos and diagrams to illustrate track layouts and operations. Interlocking towers and their various control systems are explained, along with a step-by-step guide to building a working model of a mechanical interlocking plant.

Adding or improving junction scenes can add dimension and detail to your layout. Jeff Wilson, author of many model railroading books, outlines several hands-on modeling projects to help you model junctions realistically. In this book, Jeff will show you how to: Build a working mechanical interlocking, Add working signals to a junction, Understand interlocking signal aspects, Accurately detail junction scenes, Add interchange tracks to increase traffic, Operate trains realistically at junctions, Hide tracks at backdrops.

Whether you're in the process of planning a layout or interested in adding a junction to your current layout, The Model Railroader's Guide to Junctions will be a great reference in realistically modeling a scene.
