Layout Advice, Support & Construction

We are happy to provide informal 'layout' advice and guidance via the shop, including DCC.
 
Our aim is to support you in developing a layout that you'll be thrilled with, with minimal financial outlay.
 
For this reason, we have a working layout in our shop where we can showcase and discuss all commonly encountered aspects of model railway construction, such as base-board construction, track-laying, electrics and scenics.
 
This should allow you to complete your own layout, with confidence.

We also offer a Savings Club and Christmas Club, allowing customers to build their layouts over time, spreading the cost.
 
Further support and layout construction can be offered by arrangement. Please contact us for details.
