I was wondering if there is a book that covers everything? Well a little of everything I know there is to much for 1 book. I seen a couple of books for around $40 "Model Train Help" is one. Is it good one? I want some wiring,layouts,scenery,tips,how too you know where i'm going. Any ideas???

Anybody else have anything to recommend? I'm sure those would be great books but i'm also looking for DCC info to. I've looked and found used vol. 1 and 2 anywhere from $2 to $54 each. They are listed as 1975s too. Hey those are older than me( wish I was 30 then all the muscle cars and great music).

Ya know, I was just looking at my "library". There must be 40 or so books. I could not recommend a single "one size fits all" book. All are pretty much single subject(DCC, track laying, layout, wiring....), or volumes. That kinda sucks in my opinion. I never noticed that before. Well, maybe I noticed it , I just didn't pay attention.

I have done a little programming in the past. It depends on what you want to know. A general book is a general book. If you need specific information then you have to start searching through them to find what you want. My theory as applied to computer books was the thicker the better.:)
