Build a Model Railway

Pt1: From Start to Finish


★★★★★ "Build a Model Railway is exactly what anyone starting out needs! It is a really comprehensive guide for the budding model railway hobbyist." Metcalfe Models

The first of three professionally filmed programmes, this 60-minute production, jam packed with graphics, illustrations, hints and tips for both the model train set newcomer and model railway hobbyist. Filmed over 12 months, it takes the viewer through a step-by-step process of locomotive selection and planning your layout through to completed construction including viaduct, scenery & backdrop and water feature.

With many of the big brand names used in the construction process such as Bachmann Europe, Hornby, Gaugemaster, PECO, Metcalfe Models, Javis, Woodland Scenic and Oxford Rail to name but a few, the production is both educational and entertaining.

Director of photography Stewart Menelaws gets to relive a boyhood hobby when the production studio turns one of its offices into the railway hobbycraft project room. Originally planned for television, the production changed direction as Stewart saw the need for a concise product that would help both newcomer and enthusiast alike.

Available in both DVD and High Definition Video-on-Demand.
