ALMOST REAL by Markus Tiedtke. The Astounding Model Railroads of Joseph Brandl. There are few modelers who's skills are such that all others wish to aspire! Josef Brandl is such a man! Perhaps the finest modeler we have seen here at Scenic Express!! This book is a coffee-table style book, having a minimal amount of text and countless pages of full color images! The book doesn't focus on modeling (although it does mention a few techniques) as it highlights graphically six of his most notable layouts. Written in both English and German. A truly fascinating 204 page book!
