As mentioned in this previous post, I’ve scanned a few other model-train materials in these past few months – this guide to model railroading that came with my first train set is one of them.
I was already fascinated with model trains themselves, and this guide just added to it. For a time it was my preferred bedtime reading, dreaming about all the possibilities before I even fell asleep. As can be seen in the PDF, I checked off the items I owned. In that regard, it’s kind of a nice historical record.
Since there’s no date in the guide that I can see, I can only surmise that it was published in the late 80s or early 90s.
