Item description for Brilliantly Old Fashioned: The History of ACE O by Allen Levy...

The story of ACE Gauge 0 Trains is one of the most fascinating first-hand accounts of a model train company ever published. The founders of the great Gauge 0 makers of the past were not able to chronicle the story of their firm's foundation, thinking and manufacturing history. Although ACE Trains do not match the size of its forebears such as Hornby, Marklin, Bing and Bassett Lowke, its products do, particularly in charisma, quality and that indefinable characteristic that makes an item collectable. Over a decade ago ACE Trains led the revival of Gauge 0 ready-to-run three rail trains. This book charts the history, product range and rationale that has made ACE one of the most famous lines of coarse scale trains ever produced, with many items never having been attempted by other makers. The author and co-founder of ACE Trains is respected throughout the world of model railways and his first book A Century of Model Trains was a bestseller and is regarded as a classic in the toy collecting field.

Reviews - What do customers think about Brilliantly Old Fashioned: The History of ACE O?

The Book is as Good as the Trains  May 7, 2006
If you have an interest in toy trains, in particular European `O' gauge trains, you will enjoy this book. If you are a collector or operator of Hornby, Basset-Lowke, or Marklin `O' gauge trains you will want this book. If you own or are interested in the new ACE three-rail, "ready to run" `O' gauge trains you will love this book. `Brilliantly Old Fashioned - The Story of ACE `O' Gauge Trains" is all at the same time:
- a history of recent 3-rail European trains
- a catalog of the ACE production over the past ten years
- a view into how model trains are produced in today's global economy
- a scrapebook of pictures from train shows and events both in England and on the Continent

ACE Trains has rejuvenated the European 3-rail market with their new line of tinplate coaches, tank wagons, and locomotives and beautiful diecast locomotives. This book, chuck full of pictures and engineering drawings, provides a full review of the ACE products as well as a highly readable narrative about how the products are made and the personalities involved in the business. I highly recommend the book.
