Model Railways

Railway modelling (known as model railroading in the US) is a hobby in which rail transport systems are modelled at a reduced scale. The scale models include tracks, signalling and rail vehicles (rolling stock, locomotives, and so on), along with scenery such as roads, lights, buildings, model figures, vehicles, and natural features like hills, streams and valleys.

In this section, you'll find a complete guide to railway modelling, including a handy glossary of model railway terms and phrases, whether you're a complete newcomer to the hobby or an experienced modeller.
