The LEGO® Trains Book Hardcover


Product Description:

While the LEGO® company's official line of trains is one of their most popular themes, official sets can be limiting-and expensive. Many model railroad fans want to build custom creations without the confines of official LEGO® sets. For these serious fans, The LEGO® Trains Book offers a comprehensive, photographic journey with building instructions that is sure to feed their passion. Readers begin with a walk-through of the official LEGO® train systems to get the lay of the land and feel for its details and characteristic styles.

Next they learn how to integrate stylistic aspects from different sets in their own models, and how to combine standard LEGO® building styles with advanced aesthetic techniques like microstriping and creating texture to make realistic models. Matthes also discusses the model-making process, including how to choose scale, wheels, and motors as well as how to build flexible track, track layout, and create essentials like doors, windows, and track intersections.

The book ends with full-color, step-by-step building instructions for models based on real trains like a modern Regional-Express and a historic B10 Steam Engine. Just like the best-selling LEGO® Architect before it, The LEGO® Trains Book provides endless inspiration for anyone interested in design and engineering, and offers a mix of practical advice and building instructions. The LEGO® Trains Book is destined to become the ultimate guide for any train lover interested in building their own model trains with LEGO.
