6 model railway builders on YouTube you have to follow

model-railway-youtubeYouTube is a great resource for railway modellers, the problem is there are so many videos it can be hard to find quality channels. Here are six of the best YouTube modellers to learn, watch and be inspired by.

According to stats, YouTube has over a billion users and more video is uploaded to YouTube in one month than the 3 major US networks created in 60 years. It’s a huge resource and if you learn by watching it’s hard to beat. But with so many videos online it can be hard to find really useful stuff.

I know I certainly struggle to find the material I’m looking for and often find myself idly watching material completely different to watch I started out to find! At least, that was until I found these six channels that focus on making Hornby (and of course other model railway manufacturer’s) layouts.

But before getting into the compilation, a quick note.

There are plenty of other channels that focus on reviews or demonstrating layouts or showing full-size trains in operation. For this compilation, however, I’ve focused on the construction element of the hobby and picked only channels that offer lots of tips, advice and guides to building railways. A sister post to this will follow on the other aspects of model railways and trains if you’re interested – watch this space.

  1. Watched Everard Junction since Richard extended the layout continued watching in envy including the additional central peninsula, it was sad to see this great layout taken down but the new layout looks very promising. Regards Patrick

  2. Some of these layouts clearly show a far higher standard of modelling and artwork than I am capable of. Nonetheless, I find looking at the work of others both instructive and inspirational. 

  3. No model railway youtube things for me, I just see “[wonderplugin_carousel id=”2″]”
    You may need to fix this.
