Star of social media and local TV, the Jersey-based HSBA railway comes to Garden Rail. Built by Curtis and Nikki Stanier, this beautiful, G scale line is regularly open to the public, and has raised a huge amount for charity along the way. 

As a special treat for December, we also visit the Arrowbear outdoor Lego railway in the USA. 

With winter on the way, and the workbench beckoning, we bring you some fun projects: :

  • Building a rail truck from a souvenir. 
  • Adding fish traffic to your line
  • Building a railcar from a damaged coach
  • A selection of small, fun, locomotives
And if all this is too much, we prove that garden railways are good for you!

Plus our usual extensive new of new products for the large-scale modeller.
