Scenery is what ties a model railroad together and brings it to life! You can have meticulously detailed rolling stock, and neatly laid track … but you’ll need good scenery if you’re to have a realistic-looking miniature world. And the more realistic the model railway scenery is; the more believable the rest of the elements will be.


In my opinion a realistic-looking model railroad is one that gives you the feeling of scenery with track passing through it – not lots of track with a little scenery around it. But, in all fairness that’s something you’ll need to decide for yourself. How much priority you want to give to scenery, or to train operations, is always an individual choice. Personally, I would resist the temptation to add an extra spur or siding, even if I had the space to do it.


That’s my golden rule; if you want realistic model railway scenery you’ll need to leave space for it.


There’s a lot more I can show you, so I’ve made some more videos about model railway scenery.
