"The Degulbeef & Cradding Railroad is a fictitious Pacific Northwest mining and logging system in the Roaring Twenties. With humor and wittiness, outstanding modeler Alexander Zelkin tells about his Sn3 layout, and his own life as well, while sharing with us his techniques in 30 lavishly illustrated tutorials. More than a third of the book is devoted to how-to material, and includes dozens of how-to photos.
"The 20-minute DVD included with the book features, in a jesting spirit and with fun, the particularities of such an achievement, as presented by its author, who has published many articles in the Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette."
