Recent additions to my tramway modelling library

Two recent purchases I have made from the Tramway & Light Railway Society bookshop, that I should have made some time ago. I even “forgot” when I was at the recent AGM of that august society!

“How to go Tram & Tramway Modelling” by David Voice– I have an earlier edition but have needed to update a few years ago. This “latest” issue is in fact 12 years old- but still with lots more info than the earlier edition I have. Unfortunately several suppliers mentioned are no longer about, but most have suitable replacement- others doing much the same thing at new addresses or with new owners

“Large Scale Tramway Modelling -an introduction & guide” by Peter Hammond & Peter Howard covers a new area for me, although I have a couple of large scale RTR models of American outline streetcars stored away. These were obtained in that long forgotten era of low American prices and a good $ to £ exchange rate. I have long fostered the idea of a small outdoor (garden) tramway and perhaps this book will encourage me to “have a go.” Published by the T&LRS in 2015

Both well recommended.
