Building a Model Railway - Part 1 - Modular Benchwork


(Comments posted here are more likely to get a response 😉)


Building a Modular Model Railway, I’ll take you through the steps I’ve taken to begin building my model train layout. It’s going to be a switching layout that is built in modules so it’s easy to dismantle and move.

Check out my website for more specific information like measurements and cost.

I’ve chosen to work mostly with plywood and extruded foam for the subroadbed, foam is a great material to use especially for modules because it’s light weight, versatile and very easy to work with when it comes to forming terrain and ditches.

Follow along in the series as I walk through the entire process of building a model railway, from benchwork to scenery and operations.

Extra Files:

Additional content that will help you recreate and follow along with the build, some of the 3D printer files are still experimental and may require some tinkering in order to get them to print successfully. Also, nearly all of the 3D printer files are designed for resin 3D printers, trying to print them using a filament 3D printer may not be possible!

But in any case, I hope you enjoy the extra content.
