Rail Express  |  Train formations handbook (from Rail Express)  


THIS new publication brings together a collection of detailed and informative articles from the pages of Rail Express magazine. Over the years, the magazine’s dedicated modelling section, Rail Express Modeller, has published dozens of superb pieces on the formation of trains in the diesel and electric era, and how they can be re-created in model form.

Each the result of years of research, these articles have become highly valued by historians and modellers alike. In response to public demand, what follows is a compilation of some of the most interesting and useful train formations articles from REM over the last 15 years. Covering operations as diverse as power station coal traffic, nuclear and military trains, Travelling Post Office (TPO) workings, grain traffic and the ever-popular Scottish push-pull trains, the articles outline the huge variety of different vehicles used and what is available to model them accurately. We’ve also included a couple of route specific pieces, tackling trains on the famous Woodhead Route and West Highland Line, which are easier than ever to model with ready-to-run products thanks to the recent explosion in RTR locomotives and rolling stock in N, OO and O gauge.

Even if you’re not a modeller, there’s a great deal of information to enjoy over the next 130 pages, as well as dozens of superb photographs that will bring back happy memories of the last four decades.
