Dave’s Model Railway In The Loft

Dave has built this magnificent model railroad in his loft.

Watch the video as he takes you on a complete tour of the streets, roads, buildings, lakes and so much more.

See if you notice the access points in the middle of Dave’s model train layout. 

Watch the trains run and enjoy a masterpiece that Dave reckons is not finished yet… wow!

    Fantastic layout, thanks for sharing.  I can tell a lot of work went into this one.

    Absolutely brilliant. Loved the chippy’s sign – almost smell the chips wrapped in newspaper! I’ll have to reconsider the guest bedroom now as it’s in the attic.

  5. Dave, you make me want to cry. My own HO layout was destroyed while I was moving my office. Seeing yours makes me realize what I am missing. I will rebuild by Christmas.

    • Thanks Eustace, glad it gives you the inspiration to start again

  6. Yes, a masterpiece! Every thing about it and great video! Now it’s on my ‘bucket list’ along with seeing Paris. The time, the scenes, the cars (dinky toys?) the buildings and even whimsey.

      I have followed Dave’s layout for years through videos he posts to a newsletter run by Al. Is there any chance you can help me get in contact again with Al and that newsletter so I can get emailed to me again?

      Thanks so much………

  7. Brilliant layout what a masterpiece mine takes up the whole of my attic,but yours is far superior so its back to the drawing board for me

    Exceptional layout system, Dave. Well done! We could all take a few lessons in neatness and design from you. Thanks.

    Seeing this video has me wanting to get a passport and fly to England, if for no other reason, just to spend a few months touring the rural areas and only the high spots in London. I’m not fond of cities anyway, but London has always interested me , for some reason. I guess it could be my ancestry traces back to England.

    Beautiful work, Dave. Looks like a mid-60’s-’70’s setting, judging from the vehicles, businesses, etc. And England, of course. Guessing at the size…”O” means a huge space, and the workmanship is deserving of that size. But is it really? HO would still be a mammoth undertaking. Please let us know.

      Hi Gordon , yes it is HO or as we have in UK 00 ..it is about 30ftft x 8ft taken just short of 4 years to get to this size, (got carried away) and I tried to base it on the 60`s
