This volume recounts the development of toy railways, bringing to life the men behind the labels, from the innovative Stephan Bing to the entrepreneurial Wenman Bassett-Lowke; gives advice on building a collection; explains the minutiae that can make one locomotive or wagon worth considerably more than another; and warns of the pitfalls of replicas, damage, and poor restoration.
