    Default December 2 only John Armstrong Track Planning for Realistic Operation

    As this is one of the best essential references for track planning, I felt this would be of particular interest for those who do not have a copy in their toolbox. Kalmbach Publishing have this on sale for 1 day only at 1/2 price (Saturday Dec 2).

    I paid full pop for my copy (also third edition) a few years back, and it was worth every penny. It still is as I start on the new layout. But I would have liked it at 50% off even better!

    Best investment I ever made on my layout was getting this book. When I first got it I couldn't put it down, read it cover to cover. Since then I've probably reread most of the chapters a couple of times.

    I bought mine so many years ago, I don't remember exactly when it was. i have always thought John Armstrong was a genius.
