When I started to consider building a model railway, at the beginning of 2006, I began by looking at all the magazines I could get my hands on, and by scouring the internet.

Below is a list of some of the websites that have inspired me:

British Layouts
P4 Newstreet
Jim Smith-Wright’s P4 Gauge project based on Birmingham New Street.

The Model Railways of Chris Nevard
The model railway layouts of Chris Nevard are always well done.

EM gauge layouts and models.
British Rail in the 70’s & 80’s… EM Gauge layouts and contemporary photographs

European Layouts
A Norwegian site with an amazing eye for detail. I’ve used Altavista’s Babel Fish to translate this roughly.

American Layouts
Bronx Terminal
An interesting project by Tim Warris which I am following. Again, always well executed.

Port Kelsey
A previous project by Tim Warris on which I particularly liked some of the finishing details.

CNJ at Mauch Chunk
A well researched and detailed HO layout of the CNJ station in Mauch Chunk, in the late 1940s.

DCC – Digital Command Control
JMRI: Java Model Railroad Interface
The JMRI project is a collection of Java based software solutions for controlling a layout, without being computer, or system, specific.
