Railway Modelling

Railway modelling, or model railroading, is a hobby based on the collection of scale railway models, as well as all the accessories and techniques used for building a railroad layout, where the train pass through.

All hobbyists sharing this hobby are known as "railway modellers" or "model railroaders".

Depending on each country, some scales and gauges more widespread than others. In general, the most common scales are 0 (corresponding to 1/43.5), H0 (which corresponds to a 1/87 reduction) and the N scale (corresponding to a 1/160 reduction).

We could say that railway modeling encloses everything related to train scale models, from the collectible aspect of the hobby to the landscape modelling.

Model railway layouts

Nowadays, railway layouts can be of many types. The simplest option is the classic fixed tabletop, but if the available space is not too big, it can also be hung from the ceiling, under the bed, occupy a closet door or on a perimeter shelf.

The option of modular railway layouts have become increasingly popular, both because of their greater mobility and versatility and because they can be taken to different model railway exhibitions.
