Inspiration in book form...

Since becoming more interested in G, LGB in particular, and being taken by the company's more Austrian prototypes I very recently bought this excellent title from the Middleton Press online store (

Austrian Narrow Gauge (featuring steam in the Alps) by John Organ.

First impressions are good, lovely atmospheric photos, route plans, descriptions and some well written sections. Perhaps a little more on the rack railways than I would like but the title does a good job of covering the narrow gauge (both 760mm and 1m, steam, diesel and electric, old, closed, modern and preserved) lines across the country.

I look forward to a few quiet evenings, coffee, biscuit and my favourite arm chair!
