Great Britain is blessed with a vast and unique diversity of heritage railway locations visited, travelled on and enjoyed by tens of thousands of people every year. Building model railway layouts based on the activities of the preservation movement is becoming increasingly popular across our hobby and this book provides a guide for modellers looking to accomplish something in this area of interest for themselves. It starts with a look at the many positive advantages of tackling a preservation site as a modelling project. before taking the reader on a tour of some of the best heritage railway layouts which have been built in recent years. Also included are surveys of selected real-life preservation lines - both standard and narrow gauge - as examples of such railways that would make for great projects in their own right. Each example is accompanied by a scale plan prepared using Peco Streamline geometry to act as a guide to the size and shape of a suitable layout. A chapter on model-making projects which relate specifically to recreating the preservation era concludes the book.
