Belfield Hall Estate Railway New Open link in new window
The Belfield Hall Estate Railway was a model of an imaginary, 15 inch gauge estate railway, in 7mm scale. In building the model, a baseboard had to be constructed and what developed became a concept that interested many modellers faced with restricted working or storage area, or those who like to have a short-term project every now and then.

The BHER featured in the 'Railway Modeller', the main publication for the hobby and the 7mm Narrow gauge Association magazine. Both articles inspired further circular railways, one from East Anglia in 009 (which aslo featured in the 'Railway Modeller') and one in Canada. Latterly, the layout has been featured on Carl Arendts "Micro / Small Layouts for Model Railroads" web site.

Bob Hughes Playing Trains New Open link in new window
My model railway interests range from N gauge to Gn15, tending more towards narrow gauge in the larger scales, and usually in limited spaces but the FCPyF is being rebuilt as a single large layout instead of a conglomeration of smaller ones.

This website is intended as my diary but if you’d like to tag along for the ride please feel welcome. As the site develops it should show the progress of various railway modelling projects and layouts but, as you’ll see from the blog entries, my main interest lies with O scale narrow gauge modelling.

Sidney Micro New Open link in new window
Welcome to my Micro Layout page. A Micro layout may not be "one millionth of" but it sure is small! The goal is to create an operating model railroad in four square feet or less. It may be in any scale or gauge. In fact, despite their small size, some of the most fascinating micros are in O scale or larger. In my case, I am modeling in On30 and On18 - O scale using HO and N gauge track respectively. Inspired by Carl Arendt's web site, Micro LAYOUTS for Model Railroads, I built my first micro and had more fun than I had in years of designing and trying to build large "mainline" model railroads. The preliminary computer sketches of that layout, the Knockout, are shown above.

Annie's Zoo Open link in new window
The Elsie City Zoo is a small model zoo 2 foot wide and 4 foot long. It's built in HO scale. HO is a scale of 1 foot on the model being 87 feet in the world I'm creating. So I had to build my zoo in a space 174 feet by 348 feet. It's not much space for a zoo!

My zoo has a Zoo Train. The Zoo Train runs on tracks that would be 30" apart if it were real. Since it's shrunk down 1/87th real size, it runs on tracks 0.3" wide. That, by happy chance, is the same width as N gauge tracks. So I can use some N gauge parts in my Zoo Train.

My zoo is part of the Elsies group. We call the zoo and the other bits of railroad 'modules', and each build one or two modules. We all agree on certain standards that let us connect our modules to each other. So a train can start on one person's module and travel to the next module. We get together at each other's homes and at public events and run our tiny trains.

Building narrow gauge layouts in a small space. Has projects, trackplans, galleries

Micro Layout One of my main interests in model railroading are micro layouts, i.e. layouts with less then 4 sq.ft.. A description and some pictures of my own micro layout shows that I'm not only planning but also building (although slowly)

Model railroads in Germany Ed Pick Open link in new window
A huge urban dead end terminus station on a small 6,6 x 3,3 feet model train table? And, in addition, a continuous run for long trains? Seems to be an almost impossible undertaking at first. But when I came up in 2008 with this idea, room space, time and budget were short. So how to proceed? Doing the BIG Bluff was the answer! See the track plan for more details. Here the pictures and the "Making of"!

The website gives information about model railroading in Germany (manufacturers, scales) and features a 1:160 scale layout of the Munich Central Station.
