Fascinating biography of Henry Greenly, one of the leading figures in the early 1900s in promoting the hobby of model engineering and the building of small-scale garden and public railways in England and on the Continent. Greenly's work is reviewed from all angles and brings his buoyant personality to life. Greenly's first book, "The Model Locomotive," was the first serious attempt to produce a textbook which placed the model steam engine on a firm basis whereby fundamental engineering principles and laws of mechanics were applied. Perhaps his greatest work was the building of the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, and the greatest testament to his skill the fact that the locomotives are still running. 251 pages with index.
