Welcome to 'Layouts Made Easy' a perfect way to build a model railway in simple stages.
Planning a new model railway layout can seem quite daunting, especially for someone new to the hobby. To make things easier, Hornby has created ‘Layouts Made Easy’ offering a selection of track, building and train packs to help the beginner to get started with the minimum of fuss.

The Layout Packs are supplied with track to produce three sized layouts. Suitable for beginners, these Track Packs include all the track required, conveniently bundled together to build a model railway to suit the area available.
These handy Layout Packs come in a variety of sizes to suit any space - small, medium or large. Ideal for both beginners and expert modellers, these Layout Track Packs include all the track you need, conveniently bundled together to build your new model railway based on your selected layout, saving you the trouble of piecing together all the different track pieces individually.
With the variety of track layout packs available here, you're sure to find one to scratch your modelling itch.
With so much choice, sometimes deciding which buildings to add to a new model railway can be almost as confusing as deciding which layout to build. The Hornby building packs have been carefully compiled to include a variety of detailed resin buildings to suit the layouts theme.
There are three packs to choose from with each having their own selection of buildings.
With the building packs offering exceptional value, all three could easily be accommodated on any of the three layouts.
When new to the hobby the choice of locomotives and rolling stock can be quite daunting. With this in mind Hornby have created three packs each with different locomotives and rolling stock. Again, any of these train packs can be chosen and with the building packs, offer extremely good value.
Beyond Layouts Made Easy
When creating a model railway, it is always best to consider the following points. Where will the layout be located? Is it dry and is the temperature consistent? Are there enough power points and lastly what control system will be used – Standard DC (analogue) or DCC (Digital)? Each have their own advantages but if in doubt go and see your local model shop and they will be pleased to advise. Remember modelling railways is fun, do not make it stressful.
If you wish to add to your layout, be it additional locomotives or scenic accessories then visit either your local model shop or www.hornby.com.
