Getting Started - An introduction to Model Railways
Railway modelling is creating a miniature railway. From wooden toy railways for small children up to large model railway layouts - create your own model railway in any way you please.
Relive the nostalgic era of steam with a historical or heritage railway layout, or recreate modern diesel and electric railways. Shunt wagons around a fiddle yard, or build loops for passenger trains. Create urban settings filled with houses, shops, and industry, or wide open countryside with rolling hills, woodland, rivers, and rocky cliffs. Build a small layout or fill a whole room with a layout that you can spend years creating.
