Model Railroad Books and Magazines

While reading over the many pages in this site, you may wonder how did he get to know so much about building a model railroad?  Well, a lot of it came from watching other model railroaders, going to train shows, visiting club layouts, visiting train stations and museums all over the country, from reading magazines like Model Railroader, and a lot of it came from books.

Magazines for Model Railroaders

Okay, I admit, these are all from Amazon. You could find many of the same on EBAY and some of them can be purchased in hobby shops, which you should visit whenever you can. (You run into all kinds of knowledgeable people in train stores plus many of them have a train repair service.)

But, I wanted to offer them here, because it's easier and may be helpful to you, and I won't lie, I make a very small commission if you purchase one, but it won't cost you any more than it would otherwise.

So browse around and see if you can find anything that would supplement your model railroading knowledge in a critical area.  I think the history sections listed below may be particularly helpful to those wishing to create a more prototypical layout.  Please forgive me if there are any unintentional duplicate links. If you don't buy anything here, that's okay.  I don't make much on them anyway:)
