Model railroading , 1955

1955, interesting time to be a model railroader, steam to diesel transition in the real world, airlines hadn't quite made inroads into railway passenger service. Plastic model kits and zamac castings were making realistic models much easier to achieve, but the oriental brass locomotive industry also hadn't made its presence felt. HO scale was becoming popular, making the possibility of large layouts possible in smaller suburban houses.

The table of contents is pretty much timeless.
