Railway modelling UK, Australia and Ireland or model railroading US and Canada is a hobby in which rail transport systems are modelled at a reduced scale. The scale models include locomotives , rolling stock , streetcars , tracks , signalling and landscapes including: countryside, roads, bridges, buildings, vehicles, urban landscape, model figures , lights, and features such as rivers , hills , tunnels, and canyons.
The earliest model railway s were the ' carpet railways ' in the s. Electric trains appeared around the start of the 20th century, but these were crude likenesses. Today modellers create model railway layouts , often recreating real locations and periods throughout history.
It remained in use until Involvement ranges from possession of a train set to spending hours and large sums of money on a large and exacting model of a railroad and the scenery through which it passes, called a "layout".
Hobbyists, called "railway modellers" or "model railroaders", may maintain models large enough to ride see Live steam , Ridable miniature railway and Backyard railroad. Modellers may collect model trains, building a landscape for the trains to pass through. They may also operate their own railroad in miniature. For some modellers, the goal of building a layout is to eventually run it as if it were a real railroad if the layout is based on the fancy of the builder or as the real railroad did if the layout is based on a prototype.
If modellers choose to model a prototype, they may reproduce track-by-track reproductions of the real railroad in miniature, often using prototype track diagrams and historic maps. Layouts vary from a circle or oval of track to realistic reproductions of real places modelled to scale.
The museum also houses one of the earliest scenic models — the Madder Valley layout built by John Ahern. This was built in the late s to late s and brought in realistic modelling, receiving coverage on both sides of the Atlantic in the magazines Model Railway News and Model Railroader. Bekonscot in Buckinghamshire is the oldest model village and includes a model railway, dating from the s.
These layouts can become extremely complex with multiple routes, movement patterns and timetabled operation. Model railroad clubs exist where enthusiasts meet. Clubs often display models for the public. One specialist branch concentrates on larger scales and gauges , commonly using track gauges from 3. Models in these scales are usually hand-built and powered by live steam, or diesel-hydraulic, and the engines are often powerful enough to haul dozens of human passengers. As well as building model railways, it has 5, books and periodicals.
Similarly, 'The Historical Model Railway Society'  at Butterley , near Ripley, Derbyshire specialises in historical matters and has archives available to members and non-members.
The words scale and gauge seem at first interchangeable but their meanings are different. Scale is the model's measurement as a proportion to the original, while gauge is the measurement between the rails. The largest common scale is , with sometimes used for park rides. It is easier to fit a G scale model into a garden and keep scenery proportional to the trains.
Gauge 1 and Gauge 3 are also popular for gardens. At first, model railways were not to scale. Official scales for the gauges were drawn up but not at first rigidly followed and not necessarily correctly proportioned for the gauge chosen.
British OO standards operate on track significantly too narrow. This arose due to British locomotives and rolling stock being smaller than those found elsewhere, leading to an increase in scale to enable H0 scale mechanisms to be used.
In H0 scale, the rail heights are codes , 87, Later, modellers became dissatisfied with inaccuracies and developed standards in which everything is correctly scaled. These are used by modellers but have not spread to mass-production because the inaccuracies and overscale properties of the commercial scales ensure reliable operation and allow for shortcuts necessary for cost control.
The finescale standards include the UK's P4, and the even finer S4, which uses track dimensions scaled from the prototype. Check-rail and wing-rail clearances are similarly accurate. It gives a better appearance than OO though pointwork is not as close to reality as P4. It suits many where time and improved appearance are important. There is a small following of finescale OO which uses the same Many groups build modules, which are sections of layouts, and can be joined together to form a larger layout, for meetings or for special occasions.
For each kind of module system, there is an interface standard, so that modules made by different participants may be connected, even if they have never been connected before. Many of these module types are listed in the Layout standards organizations section of this article. In addition to different scales, there are also different types of couplers for connecting cars, which are not compatible with each other.
Horn hook couplers have largely given way to a design known as a working knuckle coupler which was popularized by the Kadee Quality Products Co. Working knuckle couplers are a closer approximation to the "automatic" couplers used on the prototype there and elsewhere. Also in HO, the European manufacturers have standardized, but on a coupler mount, not a coupler: many varieties of coupler can be plugged in and out of the NEM coupler box.
None of the popular couplers has any resemblance to the prototype three-link chains generally used on the continent. This theoretically enables modellers of British railways to substitute any other NEM coupler, though many Bachmann models place the coupler pocket at the wrong height.
A fairly common alternative is to use representations of chain couplings as found on the prototype, though these require large radius curves to be used to avoid derailments. Other scales have similar ranges of non-compatible couplers available.
In all scales couplers can be exchanged, with varying degrees of difficulty. Some modellers pay attention to landscaping their layout, creating a fantasy world or modelling an actual location, often historic. Landscaping is termed "scenery building" or "scenicking".
Constructing scenery involves preparing a sub-terrain using a wide variety of building materials, including but not limited to screen wire, a lattice of cardboard strips, or carved stacks of expanded polystyrene styrofoam sheets.
The scenery base is covered with substitutes for ground cover, which may be Static Grass or scatter. Scatter or flock is a substance used in the building of dioramas and model railways to simulate the effect of grass, poppies, fireweed, track ballast and other scenic ground cover.
Scatter used to simulate track ballast is usually fine-grained ground granite. Scatter which simulates coloured grass is usually tinted sawdust , wood chips or ground foam.
Foam or natural lichen or commercial scatter materials can be used to simulate shrubbery. An alternative to scatter, for grass, is static grass which uses static electricity to make its simulated grass actually stand up. Buildings and structures can be purchased as kits, or built from cardboard, balsa wood , basswood , other soft woods, paper , or polystyrene or other plastic.
Trees can be fabricated from materials such as Western sagebrush , candytuft , and caspia, to which adhesive and model foliage are applied; or they can be bought ready-made from specialist manufacturers.
Water can be simulated using polyester casting resin , polyurethane , or rippled glass. Rocks can be cast in plaster or in plastic with a foam backing. Castings can be painted with stains to give colouring and shadows. Weathering refers to making a model look used and exposed to weather by simulating dirt and wear on real vehicles, structures and equipment.
Also, the wear a freight car or building undergoes depends not only on age but where it is used. Rail cars in cities accumulate grime from building and automobile exhaust and graffiti , while cars in deserts may be subjected to sandstorms which etch or strip paint. A model that is weathered would not fit as many layouts as a pristine model which can be weathered by its purchaser. There are many weather techniques that include, but are not limited to, painting, sanding, breaking, and even the use of chemicals to cause corrosion.
Some processes become very creative depending on the skill of the modeller. For instance several steps may be taken to create a rusting effect to ensure not only proper colouring, but also proper texture and lustre.
Weathering purchased models is common. At the least, weathering aims to reduce the plastic-like finish of scale models. The simulation of grime, rust, dirt, and wear adds realism. Some modellers simulate fuel stains on tanks, or corrosion on battery boxes.
In some cases, evidence of accidents or repairs may be added, such as dents or freshly painted replacement parts, and weathered models can be nearly indistinguishable from their prototypes when photographed appropriately. Static diorama models or 'push along' scale models are a branch of model railways for unpowered locomotives, examples are Lone Star and Airfix models. Other locomotives, particularly large models can use steam. Steam and clockwork driven engines are still sought by collectors.
Although this made control crude the models were large and robust enough that handling the controls was practical. Various manufacturers introduced slowing and stopping tracks that could trigger levers on the locomotive and allow station stops.
Early electrical models used a three-rail system with the wheels resting on a metal track with metal sleepers that conducted power and a middle rail which provided power to a skid under the locomotive. This made sense at the time as models were metal and conductive. Modern plastics were not available and insulation was a problem.
In addition the notion of accurate models had yet to evolve and toy trains and track were crude tinplate. A variation on the three-rail system, Trix Twin , allowed two trains to be independently controlled on one track, before the advent of Digital Command Control.
As accuracy became important some systems adopted two-rail power in which the wheels were isolated from each other and the rails carried the positive and negative supply with the right rail carrying the positive potential. Where the model is of an electric locomotive , it may be supplied by overhead lines , like the full-size locomotive. Before Digital Command Control became available, this was one way of controlling two trains separately on the same track.
The electric-outline model would be supplied by the overhead wire and the other model could be supplied by one of the running rails. The other running rail would act as a common return. Early electric trains ran on trackside batteries because few homes in the late 19th century and early 20th century had electricity. Today, inexpensive train sets running on batteries are again common but regarded as toys and seldom used by hobbyists.
Batteries located in the model often power garden railway and larger scale systems because of the difficulty in obtaining reliable power supply through the outdoor rails. Hornby Railways produce live steam locomotives in OO, based on designs first arrived at by an amateur modeller. Occasionally gasoline -electric models, patterned after real diesel-electric locomotives, come up among hobbyists and companies like Pilgrim Locomotive Works have sold such locomotives.
Large-scale petrol-mechanical and petrol-hydraulic models are available but unusual and pricier than the electrically powered versions.
