Ho Narrow Gauge Railroad You Can Build: A Narrow Gauge Project Railroad
"This project originally appeared as a series of articles in MODEL RAILROADER magazine, and was first published as a book in 1984. That edition has been out for print for more than a decade. In this Silver Anniversary Benchmark Publications' edition, author and artist Malcolm Furlow again shows you how to build your own version of the HOn3 San Juan Central. A new chapter tells what has happened to the railroad and its builder in the past 25 years. "THIS BOOK describes how its author, Malcolm Furlow, built the San Juan Central, an HOn3 model railroad. Malcolm described building this layout in a nine-part series of articles in MODEL RAILROADER magazine (November 1983 to August 1984). These articles were re-published by Kalmbach Books in 1984 - as the softbound HO Narrow Gauge Railroad You Can Build. The book went through three printings by Kalmbach over the next seven years. "Now, 25 years after the first printing, this Silver Anniversary Edition has been produced by Benchmark Publications, Ltd., publishers of the NARROW GAUGE AND SHORT LINE GAZETTE magazine. "While the text, drawings, and photos of the original book have been faithfully reproduced, the front and back covers are new, as is this introduction, and a chapter about the many activities of Malcolm after he built the San Juan Central - and what happened to it. "Benchmark Publications is proud to make Malcolm's book available again, and would like to thank Kalmbach for generously allowing us reprint it. We also want to thank Bob Hayden for organizing this Silver Anniversary Edition. We know that many "San Juan Centrals" were inspired by the first three printings, and hope that this new edition will encourage readers to build a San Juan Central of your own - whatever the scale."

Old Railroad Grade Road
Old Railroad Grade Road
This road is the reason I decided to ride the entire first day. It is the old right of way for the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad (ET&WNC). This narrow gauge railroad transported iron ore from Peg Leg and Cranberry mines to a furnace in Johnson City starting in the late 1880's. Passengers could also catch a ride to the Roan Mountain Inn. The road is so narrow in places, I could have almost touched the rocks on both sides at the same time!

Fish Camp, California. The Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad offers an exciting 4-mile excursion into the Sierra National Forest where powerful locomotives once hauled massive logs through the mountains. The railroad is a 10-minute walk from the Narrow Gauge Inn, whose original owners once operated the railroad but no longer.

Tracks across Continents, Paths through History: The Economic Dynamics of Standardization in Railway Gauge
A standard track gauge—the distance between the two rails—enables connecting railway lines to exchange traffic. But despite the benefits of standardization, early North American railways used six different gauges extensively, and even today breaks of gauge at national borders and within such countries as India and Australia are expensive burdens on commerce. In Tracks across Continents, Paths through History, Douglas J. Puffert offers a global history of railway track gauge, examining early choices and the dynamic process of diversity and standardization that resulted.
Drawing on the economic theory of path dependence, and grounded in economic, technical, and institutional realities, this innovative volume traces how early historical events, and even idiosyncratic personalities, have affected choices of gauge ever since, despite changing technology and understandings of what gauge is optimal. Puffert also uses this history to develop new insights in the theory of path dependence. Tracks across Continents, Paths through History will be essential reading for anyone interested in how history and economics inform each other.
