Beer as rail freight? Why not!
The current special edition of the EJ Model Railway Library is taking a trip to the time when it was still common to transport large and small containers full of beer by rail. But not only the finished products reached their consumers by rail, also starting raw materials such as barley crops, hops or yeast, as well as barrels, bottles and transport crates began their journey by rail. The EJ authors describe special vehicles and their use in the prototype - with a special look at "beer typical" cargoes. Own chapters show in detail how typical model freight wagons are to be authentically designed, aged and loaded. And what would this edition be without the construction of a proper model brewery and the final stop in an inn with a large beer garden?
"Bahn & Bier" undertakes a journey through the long history of a popular rail freight and provides diverse ideas for model railway operation and plant design.
