I wanted it to be busy but not overcrowded, so I tried to give enough space for different parts of the layout, ie: quarry, farm, station and manor house. There’s still more to do, but there always is when you build something like this, you always find that little bit that’s missing. If starting again for grandkids, I’d suggest keeping it simple, robust, and with scope for development or related play round the tracks.
Well Done Lawrence, Very beautifull detailed work , Very impressive for its size my friend, A lot of work in such a short period of time, I only hope my sons and mine come up to that or very near standard….
HO comes just before OO gauge, I do know that OO gauge = 16mm to the foot when building to true scale and im not certain but HO comes in at 14mm to the foot…. I have 2 4by8 sheets of plywood in a 90 degree angle and run a027 scale i bin working on it with my 7 year old grandson but a long way from your setup my imagination are not that great.
Been working feverishly in my garage stacking and piling stuff so I can start to assemble many boxes of HO I’ve collected over the years.
Model railway track plans, reviews, tips and techniques for creating the best model railway layouts.
For those building a new layout, or following along with our project to build a comparable layout but without the magazine, these are the eight must-have railway buildings to add to the track plan. Some of these (Station, Signal Box and Engine Shed) can be bought as card kits, while there are Skaledale (Hornby) equivalents for all of the buildings, and Peco branded lineside accessories for the rest. For people looking at the headline costs, we estimate about 74 GBP for kit based models, and 140 GBP for ready to plant versions. Metcalfe make a number of card kits that could be used for the station, but the Hornby ready to plant equivalents cost about the same, so might be a good option. For the engine shed, the Metcalfe kit is a double-track one, so instead we suggest the Superquick card model instead. To go with these buildings, there are a number of lineside accessories that are needed to build out the layout. The basic signal from Hornby (R171) is a cheap option, but Dapol also produce a range of electro-mechanical signals that look more realistic and work well, but are considerably more expensive.


Ready to plant coal staithes from Hornby represent great value, but Ratio produce a kit that is both cheaper, and easier to customise. Sadly, Hornby don’t produce a single track level crossing, and the Peco and Dapol ones are both kits that cost about the same amount. Finally, the tunnel portals come in both a card version, from Metcalfe, and ready to plant from Hornby.
Your Model Railway Magazine costs 8.95 GBP an issue after the promotional issues (the first 5 are considerably cheaper).
Add to that the track, rolling stock, and everything that you need to build and decorate the layout, and it begins to look somewhat reasonable.
For anyone building Your Model Railway Village, or a layout inspired by this series, the above gives a great alternative list of good quality buildings to get you started! Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers. Porter is a kind and helpful tank engine with three special domes on his boiler: one steam dome and two sandboxes. I started to build it for my grandson last summer, but I’m afraid I got carried away a little bit. It’s supposed to be because OO is old enough that the bodywork had to be large enough to accommodate the early electric motors.
The 6×4 did end up getting a lot of use though – he and his friends later took up serious wargaming thanks to Games Workshop, and the layout was a constant battleground for orcs and wargs and Lord knows what else! I , must ask how old is your grandson as I would like to build one for my grandson, however, at 4 years old everything he touches he breaks. What a waste of time after seeing what you have done, I’ve had enough space for months now!
Using simple and uncomplicated products show what can be achieved within a relatively small time period. On the other hand, the Metcalfe signal box is about half the price of the Hornby equivalent, so it really depends on the look that you are going for; red brick vs.


Hornby also make a good ready made engine shed which looks almost like the one sold as part of the Your Model Railway Village magazine collection.
Hornby make a ready to plant footbridge which may be more than double the cost, but would be a great addition to the layout.
The Peco models are more realistic, and therefore more expensive, but Hornby supply a cheaper possibility. Surprisingly, the Hornby ones are cheaper, but we prefer the look of the Metcalfe tunnel portals, and being made from card they are also easier to customise (i.e.
However, it is arguable that the quality of the Hornby, Metcalfe, Dapol and Peco equivalents will look better. In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois). The detail of the moss on the rocks, smoke from the engines, mud on the trucks and the puddles at the farm gates is outstanding, you should be proud. These are imitation rail built buffer stops, but a particular favorite alternative is the sleeper build ST-8 from Peco. That sounds like a lot, but we also estimate that, to use ready to plant equivalents for all the buildings would cost around 300 GBP.
The tunnel and rocks are made of insulating foam which I found to be great to work with and when painted looks very realistic.
Only if you see it for real you can then appreciate the level of detail is unlike anything you’ve EVER seen. To keep me in check, I have a 10 year old granddaughter whose vision on life keeps me young.
