Buying a Hornby train set is the ideal way to start your model railway collection, but what other Hornby products are available to help you take that first step from train set to model railway?  Whether building your first TrakMat layout, or extending your train set to a larger model railway layout, the basics are the same - you need to know how to lay down track, add electrical connections and scenic your layout. The Hornby book of Scenic Railway Modelling is a companion book to the Hornby book of Model Railways and goes into much more detail of how to make your layout work for you. All Hornby train sets come with a TrakMat - a scenic underlay sheet which you can use as a base for your layout at any stage in its development . This type of baseboard can be constructed to almost any size and shape, although for a TrakMat layout, the baseboard will have to be a minimum of 1800mm x 1200mm (6ft x 4ft) in size. Extend your set in easy steps by adding Hornby Track Extension Packs all the way to the full layout pictured on your TrakMat scenic underlay sheet.

It occurred to me that if you wanted to build something similar, and have a pretty much instant layout, the Hornby Railways 2014 catalogue lists something called the TrakMat (code R8217).


According to a discussion on RMWeb, the total cost of the Partworks magazine will be around ?800.
What I’m getting at is that a subscription to Hornby Magazine is about ?40 for 12 months, or ?70 for 24, and is better as a magazine, so could be substituted.
Hornby also does a range of Extension Packs, designed to be planted on the TrakMat, containing buildings and other bits and pieces.
Even if we don’t choose the cheapest, this is a fairly hefty budget and the locomotive that is supposed to run on the Your Model Railway Village layout is an extra cost above the ?900 we originally guessed at for the cost of the magazine series.
So, Hornby wins out on price, with the caveat that we’re getting a few more buildings with the magazine series, but that there’s more than enough in the budget to complement the scene with some extras! So, I’m calling this a draw, just because you could always upgrade the rolling stock by buying other kits (from Dapol, for example), or build the YMRV ones better. On the magazine front, if you want to build stuff, take it easy over a longer period, and spread the cost, then it’s a great alternative!
One of the most rewarding aspects of railway modelling is creating a world in miniature for your trains to run in. A TrakMat also tells you where to put the track, buildings and other accessories to complete the full TrakMat layout.


There are 5 in all, and, according to the Hornby web site, buying them will set you back another ?178, but check with Amazon as well. The locomotive that Hachette offer is a Bachmann Jinty, a good quality product, so the two are roughly equal on that score, too. I would say that if you have a starting budget in the hundreds of pounds, then a good starting set from Hornby, with the TrakMat gives you a place to start from. This book details a range of simple but effective techniques and useful tips and tricks for making scenic landscapes from the Age of Steam through to the modern day. I suspect that the same goes for the buildings, too, but I don’t have a comparison point. Trains will be running out of the box, and it’ll be something you can extend over time.
So, we’ve now got ?640 for the buildings, accessories, locomotives and rolling stock.
