This informative book provides a step-by-step account of the construction, from scratch, of a model railway called Dovedale. The model is operated like a real modern railway and was built entirely by the author within a strict low budget, using, wherever possible, recycled materials. Moreover, Dovedale is based on a specific prototype that exists in Buxton in Derbyshire, where freight trains run into an interchange siding, the locomotive runs round the train and then departs to a different destination. Some model railways are operated somewhat chaotically and are characterized by frequent derailments and locomotives that stop arbitrarily. If you wish to move away from this kind of layout and construct a model railway that operates realistically and reflects more closely the way that railways actually work in the second decade of the 21st century, then this is the book for you. Whilst constantly emphasizing realistic operation, the book covers layout planning and construction, controllers, point motors, power supply, cables and connectors, ways of operating traffic flows, signalling, track droppers, control panels and wiring, control and interlocking, lighting, sequence and block bells, the use of closed circuit television, and much more. Superbly illustrated with 258 colour photographs and diagrams.

Una novela que entusiasmará a los millones de lectores de El resplandor y que encantará a todos aquellos que conozcan a Danny Torrance por primera vez. Stephen King vuelve al mundo de El resplandor, una de sus novelas más queridas y emblemáticas. Ahora Danny Torrance, aquel niño aterrorizado del Hotel Overlook, es un adulto alcohólico y sin residencia fija que va de ciudad en ciudad atormentado por sus visiones y por los fantasmas de su infancia, que ha aprendido a controlar pero no a eliminar de su mente. Un día se siente atraído por una ciudad de New Hampshire, donde encontrará trabajo en una residencia de ancianos y donde se apuntará a las reuniones de Alcohólicos Anónimos. En ese lugar le llega la visión de Abra Stone, una niña que necesita su ayuda. La persigue una tribu de seres paranormales que vive del resplandor de los niños especiales. Parecen personas mayores y totalmente normales que viajan por el país en sus autocaravanas, pero su misión es capturar, torturar y consumir a estos niños. Se alimentan de ellos para vivir y el resplandor de Abra tiene tanta fuerza que los podría mantener vivos durante mucho tiempo. Danny sabe que sin su ayuda Abra nunca conseguirá escapar de ellos; juntos emprenderán una lucha épica, una batalla sangrienta entre el Bien y el Mal, para intentar salvarla a ella y a los demás niños que sacrifican. Una novela icónica en la obra de Stephen King. La crítica ha dicho... «Una lectura apasionante e inquietante que ofrece una conclusión satisfactoria a la historia de Danny Torrance.» Publishers Weekly
