Change is the Only Constant by Rob Badmington

• Standard track gauge is still 4 feet 8 ½ inches. Almost everything else in railroading has changed. This presentation will show you some of the fundamental changes that have taken place during your lifetime, and how they can be reflected on your layout. With plenty of prototype and model photos, this presentation will show how railroads have evolved dramatically in the last half century, striving for ever greater efficiency. Ideas will be discussed for representing some of these changes in your modelling, whether your era is long ago, or yesterday.
