A while ago I got the Wenz-modellbau catalog, as well as the track geometry booklet and the 3 workshop booklets. The workshops are real nice, especially the servicing depot and trackside detail ones. The servicing depot workshop goes into great detail about what kind of services should be available at various types and sizes, as well as number of serviceable locomotives. There is also information on how to incorporate all of it on a relatively small space, as well as layout plans in various sizes. Definitely worth getting if you’re planning a service depot on your layout in any scale.

The trackside details workshop is great as well, because it tells you exactly what type of details you need to add at for example turnouts. It also shows different detailing for different ways of controlling a turnout in different era’s. Rather than try to explain it, here’s a sample page of the workshop booklet.

And of the course, the main piece, the catalog. While it’s possible to view everything on the Wenz-modellbau homepage, I always find it nice to be able to browse through an actual paper catalog. And with the Wenz catalog, there’s a LOT of browsing to do. The catalog is about 200 pages, and filled with images of the various products, including many detail shots. Considering Wenz-modellbau isn’t a mass producer, the catalog is incredible. Again, rather than talk about it, here are some sample pages.
