International Orders

Update on 3rd February 2023: Royal Mail are still requesting people to stop posting new orders internationally through the Post Office. This is to allow them time to rectify the problems they are still having after the cyber attack a few weeks ago. Any international orders placed will be held until we are able to post them again.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


After layout design, the baseboard is the most important feature of any model railway. It will provide a solid base on which the tracks, buildings, and scenery depend. Without a perfectly flat and rigid base, the track could eventually become uneven, which will cause poor running, possibly derailments, and de-coupling. Not what you really want.

Unfortunately most railway modellers do not give sufficient consideration to the design and construction of their baseboards, and many are not skilled carpenters. A well built solid baseboard is an essential starting point for any model railway or diorama, and all of the parts listed within these baseboard categories will help everyone build that solid base.
