Garden Rail covers all aspects of outdoor model railways. It is aimed at established converts to the hobby, as well as those yet to desert their indoor layouts and discover the real potential of large-scale modelling in an outdoor setting. The magazine is a monthly publication.

Latest issue

Variety is the spice of life on the Greendale & Brownhill Railway. Rupert Conner and his family have built not so much 'an 0 scale' railway, more 'a no scale' railway where anything goes. From vintage steam to the latest 3D printed locomotives, all have a place in the line. 

Also in this issue: 

Opening your garden railway to the public. 

Building a budget radio control system.

Electric motors for your models, how do you pick the best?

A 3D printed GWR water tower – and the free files to make your own. 

Cooper-Craft kits are back, we build the entire 16mm scale range. 

Steam oil for your locomotive. 


Plus the latest product news for the large-scale modeller.
