Hi All,

Has anyone read the following books by Carl Weaver:

1. Layout Building Handbook for Operators of Marklin HO Trains
2. Model Railroading With Marklin HO

If you have read this book, what are your comments?

Cheers,
Ranjit

Hi Lutz,

Thank you for the link.

Btw, why did you ask me to get in touch with Steve Neski? Does he have more information on the books I am referring to?

Cheers,
Ranjit

Hi Ranjit,

I have the "Layout Building Handbook." Overall, it's a good book on the same level of quality you'd find in a typical Kalmbach MRR book. The biggest downside is that its orientation is virtually entirely analog, with barely a reference to Delta or Marklin Digital and no mention of Marklin Systems.

Best regards,

Thanks, Lee. Could you tell me what is the year of publication and the exact title of the book? Is it 'Layout building handbook: For operators of Marklin HO Trains' and was it published in 1987 or 1998?

Cheers,

Hi Ranjit,

I have Carl Weaver's book on Layout Building Handbook for Operators of Marklin Trains. I am in agreement with Lee that it is a good reference text. The text focuses on analogue operations. This edition was published in 1998 and was formerly Greenberg's Model Railroading with Marklin HO. The Acknowledgments section was written in 1992.

Hi Ranjit,

I think there are still copies of that book available. You may try searching E-bay. Reynaulds Euro-Imports may still carry a few copies also.
