Track - How it works and how to model it

This is a major publication for the Association, 140 pages, A4 format, colour illustrations throughout, and a card cover.

The prototype section is scale non-specific, covering all aspects of trackwork and associated equipment.

The modelling section, geared more toward 2FS covers the track systems available from the Association. Practical guidance is given on building realistic and reliable trackwork.

A valuable resource whatever scale you model in.

Wagon Taster Kit

What is it really like to model in 2FS?

Here’s your chance to find out.

The kit comprises a typical etched nickel silver wagon chassis including bearings, wheels, axleboxes/springs and buffers. The body is one of our popular plastic wagon kits. The kit also includes rail and Easitrac sleepers to make up a small length of track to present your finished model on. Includes full instructions, but glues, solder and paint will need to be sourced separately.

Be careful, 2FS is addictive!
