PROJECT: BRM Hornby Christmas Layout

26e25517-01c8-4126-a33c-2372949bba1d

There's something quite nostalgic about the smell of burning wood on an open fire and a train set running around a tree at Christmas. It's why Hornby produced its (R1248) Santa's Express. If the purr of an electric motor as a small locomotive runs around the base of your tree sounds idyllic, imagine how great it would be if it was travelling through a snow-filled miniature wonderland! At BRM, we're going to make this a reality, though we're making it a team effort and enlisting the help of non-railway modellers - how hard can it be? And, if you're a young modeller, we'd like you to get involved, too!

Get involved, win this train set

Keen to keep the expenditure to a minimum, here's how we'll tackle the project:

  1.  Submit your layout design that must fit on a 150cm x 100cm baseboard. The track is an oval measuring 77cm x 92cm. Three buildings are permitted and the scenery must be covered with snow. Light features are permitted.
  2.  If your design is seen to be the best, you'll win a Hornby (R1248) Santa Express Train Set ahead of this Christmas.
  3.  If your design is really good, we might even copy it!  

On your summer holidays?

We'd love to get ideas from younger modellers, too. Send your sketches to brm@warnersgroup.co.uk for a chance to win this Hornby (R1248) Santa Express.
