The Model Railway Story: From Hornby to Triang and beyond, this documentary explores how the British have been in love with model railways for more than a century. What began as an adult obsession with building fully-engineered replicas became the iconic toy of 1950s and 60s childhood. With unique archive and contributions from modellers such as Pete Waterman, this is a celebration of the joys of miniaturisation. Just don’t call them toy trains.
As with most components of a layout, all model railroaders have unique preferences for how they like to put together their trackage. Some like to build their tracks from scratch, while others opt for commercial kits that piece together without any need for additional work. And then there are those who go for the middle ground, and for that there’s HO model train flex-track.

I explain how I made some 2’x4′ and 5’x6′ module sections for James Wright’s (JLWII2000) layout. I don’t show every step but I do go through what I did to put it together and the parts I used.
Parts used 2’x4′ module:
2 – 1″x4″x8′ Quality wood
1 – 2’x4′ 1/4″ plywood (ACX or BCX)
8 – 1-1/2″ drywall screws for connecting outside frame corners.
8 – 1-1/2″ #8 wood screws for mounting the 2 center bracing studs
16 – 1″ #8 screws to mount the plywood to the frame
For a larger module do the same concept of construction but with an evenly spaced sets of stringers and bracing to screw the top down to. Making it flush and level all around.
