Model railway track plans, reviews, tips and techniques for creating the best model railway layouts.
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! Please Note: Unfortunately not all of the building is accessible for those with disabilities. A large London and North Eastern Railway layout, modelled in the 1935-40 period, on display in premises adjacent to Lynmouth Parish Church in Watersmeet Road. 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.


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.
