A quick video of my model railway layout, I bought the layout second hand and have added some buildings and am now in the process of some minor scenery tweeks and track cleaning.

This video shows a few locomotives and rolling stock on the layout of differing eras, mainly Hornby, Lima and Bachmann stock will be present!

I will try to do some videos shortly with scenery changes and locomotives running with suitable rolling stock.

Allan Smith says:

What should I get as my first set and how should I build from that

SeaToby11 says:

Do the British model freight/goods? I see a nice rake of tankers, but no sidings for a refinery or a chemical factory. I have been searching YouTube for British freight/goods being shunted, but have yet to see it being done. 

Bobby D says:

Brilliant! What's the all grey train & coaches?

Hi Matthew

Many thanks for the feedback! The layout is about 6 X 4 ft the same space as you have, this allows as you can see not too bad a size for 2 or 3 ovals really in OO gauge using the standard radius curves. The main downside I see really is the limited space for creating stations of a "scale length" and that the rake length of trains is kind of limited or the train can take up half the size of the oval, due to this I tend to have a maximum length of 6-7 engines / coaches size really!

Matthew Boot says:

Hello, I love your videos and I'm subscribed. I was wondering what size your layout is in ft? I am currently working on a 6 X 4 ft layout and I was wondering the size of yours to inspire me and my layout.

BlazersTrainz says:

I have DCC and analogue locos, normally run a couple of tracks digital and one analogue!
Thanks for watching!

ILuSiOnZzzzz says:

Dcc or analogue

BlazersTrainz says:

Hi, sorry I have no idea probably in a bundle of bits and bobs I have bought over the years!

Joe reynolds says:

0:23 where did you get the Morgan convertible from??

BlazersTrainz says:

Hi, these are the Hornby Teak LNER coaches which are the newer super detail models, thanks B_T

Jacob Morgan says:

Where did you get the coaches pulled by the (I think) West country class at the beginning.

King Hintercity says:

what size is your layout in feet

BlazersTrainz says:

Will keep my eyes peeled! 🙂

Matthew Boot says:

it's fine, an I think I could be buying a new 8×8 shed especially for my layout! Could be making some uploads of it 😉

BlazersTrainz says:


Unfotunately the majority of the hard work was done when I bought the board, I have added the majority of the buildings / people / vehicles / some details. There were two colours of ballast when I got the layout so I have painted to make it all the same and then "weathered" around the track and painted the grey bits which were bare wood when I got it.

Many thanks for your comments, I think it is getting there, not much space for anymore!

Cheers, R_R

Matthew Boot says:

WOW! I'm impressed with you layout! I own a 6×4 ft railway, but I have only about 5 buildings, 6 working engines, 12 trees, no hills/landscape and 2 or 3 stations, so i have alot of room for improvement! I was wondering if you could give me some tips on how to build up scenery and hills etc…?

BlazersTrainz says:

Hi ant

Sorry for the late reply, catching up on messages!

Many thanks glad you like it, aiming to do some more videos soon!

Just subbed back!

That's a nice layout you have there. If you could I'd really appreciate it if you checked out my channel and maybe subscribe if you like. Thanks, Ant.

Great video buddy….enjoyed, liked & thumbs-up! Some nice locos & rolling stock too. I have a 7 x 4 so its a similar size to yours….I too feature a lot happening in my videos! Cheers, John.

BlazersTrainz says:

Hi, I bought the layout with track etc all done so I am not to sure of its origin, I have done the finishing touches to it with more buildings / people / weathering etc!

Glad you like it, I have DCC and analogue locos, normally run a couple of tracks digital and one analogue!

Thanks for watching!

ThatHornbyGuy says:

Great layout! I see you used the general idea of the Hornby trakmat! that's what I'm doing! Is your layout DCC?

BlazersTrainz says:

Thanks, glad you like it! Plan on doing some more "themed" videos in the future! eg different eras and liveries etc!
