In railway modelling, getting the technical components correct is essential for a realistic-looking layout but, unfortunately, these often present the biggest challenges for the hobbyist. Using his own experience as a railway modeller and electronics engineer, Andrew Duckworth provides a guide suitable for all railway modellers, from beginners to the more experienced.

With instructions on how and where to use specialist electronic circuits to enhance your layout, Electronics and Wiring for Model Railways will help you to achieve a reasonably sophisticated layout. This book gives an overview of the geometry required for building successful model railways and includes clear explanations of electronics and electrical components. Comparisons of direct control and digital command control (DCC) are given along with step-by-step instructions for wiring the track, signals, buildings and lighting.

Reviews of electrical systems, power supplies, wires and cable, control panels and switches are included along with detection, testing and troubleshooting tips. Finally, appendices of terminology, codes and symbols used for both electronics and model railway track plans, together with capacitor conversion tables.
