Carstens "Slim Gauge Car" Book
« on: February 27, 2011, 07:09:51 AM »
I stopped by the Carstens booth at the Worlds Greatest Hobby Show in Edison, NJ yesterday.  They expect the second edition of their classic book to be ready for shipment in about two months.  If saw a copy of the first edition you know it has pictures and drawings of many narrow gauge freight and passenger cars.  It is really a 'must have' for anyone scratchbuilding narrow gauge rolling stock.  The first edition has long been out of print and I got mine on the used market for a premium price.  The new edition, at $19.95 (US) is quite a deal.  Here is a link the announcement on their website.

I have no relationship with Carstens other than having an article published in RMC.
