Nigel Digby uncovers step by step instructions on the construction of some of the lineside buildings which feature in railway environment through to the 1970s and should therefore be included in railway models. Some of the buildings covered include – minor buildings weigh bridges plate-layer huts cattle docks Lavishly illustrated with diagrams and photographs of models and the prototype, this book will convince any railway modeller of the necessity of incorporating lineside buildings to their models. A must-have for all keen railway modellers, regardless of scale or era.

He is a musician as well as an author, and lives in Cromer with his wife and three daughters.
