How to build a switching layout


Recommended Posts

Tony Sissons showed us the online work of Lance Mindheim when he was over last year. Lance is a professional layout designer and builder in the US and has written a number of books and articles.


His latest book is a 106 page paperback which takes the reader through all the stages in designing and building a small layout. The real beauty is that all of these techniques are applicable to any size, scale or gauge of layout. The key section is what he calls Difference Makers; "to isolate and prioritise the tiny handful of very simple techniques that make a dramatic difference in the appearance of a layout." This includes ideas on making backscenes look more realistic plus which detailing ideas work to enhance the appearance of the overall scene.


It is available from the Titfield Thunderbolt bookshop in Bath;
