The model railway layout baseboards described in this part of the website are my own designs. I particularly enjoy creating minimum space scenic model railway layouts with a country branch line theme.
With skilful planning an aesthetically balanced model railway layout can be created within very limited space. Such model railways are often referred to as micro layouts. Some of my micro layout designs are self-contained. Other micro layouts work like a theatre with the scenic viewing portion the ‘stage’ and fiddle yards the ‘offstage’ areas where rolling stock is swapped around.
Different arrangements of removable fiddle yards can boost operating potential significantly whilst the scenic area of the model railway layout remains the same.
