The ultimate example of this is a small book called "The Specialist" by Charles Sale, published 1n 1930 by Putnam & Company, Ltd.  I will leave it to those interested in looking up the topic, but it is entirely appropriate for any steam era modeler who has a layout (hint - the author's nickname was chic) :)  It is a great read.
