I'm planning on starting my first 'real' 00 layout in the near future
(I had 'train sets' when I was younger but this will be my first
attempt at a real layout).
I intend to use mainly flexible track (Hornby or Peco - undecided
yet). Is there a device to make accurate cutting of track easier? I
imagine something like a clamp with grooves cut for the rails, and a
slot to saw across? Or is it better to use something like a strong
straight-edge wire cutter and careful marking up?
Also, can anyone recommend 'essential reading', either books or
websites, for a beginner to modern railway modelling? I already plan
to join/visit local clubs and exhibitions.
