Brush up your modelling skills with World of Railways Skills Week


A week-long event in September is to be hosted at www.world-of-railways.co.uk, which will come jam-packed with best practice advice, video demonstrations and step-by-step guides.

The free-to-attend online event kicks off on September 20th and runs until Friday, September 24th, with a different theme on offer each day, covering all major modelling topics including trackwork, weathering, scenery and layout control.

Each day will also showcase a couple of layouts previously featured in BRM Magazine, which will provide extra inspiration for any would-be modeller.

Whether you’re new to railway modelling, or looking to hone your skills, they’ll be something on offer for everyone.

  • Day 1 – Monday, September 20th: Getting to grips with track
  • Day 2 – Tuesday, September 21st: Setting the scene
  • Day 3 – Wednesday, September 22nd: Layout control
  • Day 4 – Thursday, September 23rd: Adding detail
  • Day 5 – Friday, September 24th: Rolling stock

On the Monday, you can expect practical videos and step-by-step guides on all things track related from ballasting, track cleaning and basic wiring, to laying track and soldering techniques.

On day two, scenery takes centre stage, offering practical advice on a whole range of areas like ‘planting’ trees, applying grass, kit building and modelling water.

If DCC is still a sticking point on your layout, then Wednesday is the day to visit, with video demonstrations and advice from the experts.

Thursday is all about adding the detail, whether that be filling an awkward corner on your layout with a cameo scene, creating eye-catching structures, or weathering buildings.

Finally, Friday concentrates on adapting and enhancing your rolling stock, covering basic weathering, kit building, renumbering and more.

It’s a week not to be missed. If you haven’t done so already, pop the date in your diary and sign up to our weekly newsletter by clicking here to get regular updates.
