Thinking about ‘O’: York Modelmaking extends its range of 0-gauge laser-cut scenic products

YORK Modelmaking’s laser-cut products have been helping railway modellers add a touch of precision to their scenery for more than 10 years now, and many layouts feature their products.

Their lattice footbridges cross railway lines from Andover to Adelaide, and the kits are laser-cut from Rowmark, a modified acrylic that gives strength and durability. The versatile design can be adapted easily for different span widths, and a variety of step formations is also possible.

While the generic design is suitable across all regions, other kits like the O-gauge Midland Railway signal box are specific to a certain area.

If your layout needs something with a unique design, York Modelmaking’s bespoke service can provide the perfect solution, whether you want a complete building, lineside structure or individual component parts for your own scratch-built scenery.

How good does this footbridge look on Edward Fielder’s 0-gauge layout.

If you require doors and windows, canopy valances, fences or platform benches, you’ll almost certainly find something ready-made from their online shop,

The list of products is expanding constantly, so it’s worth taking a look at the website, and while you’re there signing up to receive the newsletters that will keep you up-to-date and also see inspiring scenery made by their customers.

The latest addition to their O-gauge range is a selection of decorative bargeboards which, being laser-cut from 1mm thick material, also makes the consistently perfect designs realistically deep – something impossible to achieve with a craft knife however steady your hand – and as with all of York Modelmaking’s products, the firm is happy to tweak the designs or dimensions if you need something unique to yourself.
