Hi,

I have quite have received a quite large gift certificate for Amazon.com, so I was wondering: what MRR books do you consider 'must haves'?

Thanks, Rene

'Fast wie echt, Almost real' features amazing scenery, just got my copy last week from Amazon.

I really like them. They are very useful, especially for American MRR.

Does anyone have the C-Track plans from Marklin Catalogue 07451 (english version). Does the book give wiring for turnouts and signals along with the track plan or just the track plan. Can the track plans which I beleive are for 3m or above be modified to fit 2m layouts?

Hi Gautam,

For what it's worth I have the German version of the book.
There are no wiring diagrams shown in this book.
Some drawings of trackplans show only the location of signals.
I doubt whether it's easy to adept the trackplans for smaller layouts.You may know already that there's another book for the smaller layouts M 07455.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards
Guus
