The Coleford Railway Story is John Wilkes’ warm hearted book about building a first narrow gauge model railway.

Having been an “armchair modeller” for many years, John finally took the plunge and started building a model railway.  Packed with more than 200 pictures and illustrations, he describes how and where he started, the skills he developed along the way, and what he created. This is one man’s account of the trials and tribulations, the joys and pleasures of modelling in 009.

Filled with insights and humorous observations. John gently leads us astray, but urges us all to “have a go”.
