Get Off Your Keester And Do Some Koester!



In the Guide to Prairie Railroading from Kalmbach, noted Model Railroader author and editor Tony Koester discusses modeling the railroads of North America's heartland.

Prairie railroads have a different feel and character compared to railroads in the mountains.

The nature of prairie railroading allows modeling these lines on narrow shelves, which maximizes your layout space whether you re dealing with a large basement or two walls of a spare bedroom.

This book is filled with both modeling tips and prototype information including how to model many types of farm fields: corn, soybeans, wheat, and more. Modeling various businesses common to the region such as grain elevators, oil dealers, coal dealers and lumber yards are also covered.

Train operations and dispatching on prairie railroads along with how they assigned locomotives are also discussed to Author Tony Koester includes many inspirational photos showing how he and several other veteran modelers captured the essence of these railroads in miniature.
