Bringing Your Layout to Life

Bring your railroad to life with lush greenery, fall colors, or glistening snow, and add trees, water, crops, shrubs, and more for a vibrant and realistic layout. Scenery is an important part of every layout. On your layout it can convey a sense of place – tall pines abound in northern forests amid rock outcroppings, deciduous trees are common in gently rolling landscapes.

Structures, people and autos help tell your railroad’s story. When you’re starting out a few houses, businesses and a train depot add fun for your train set. Buildings can also convey an era. A small industry building like a corrugated-metal coal tipple for loading a few hoppers can date back to the early 1900s, but tall coal flood loaders with silos for loading entire trains have been around only since the 1970s. When you search for structures you’ll find everything from houses to businesses and bridges to help your railroad tell its story. There are many, many accessories to choose from at with the widest selection found in HO scale. We’ve selected some of our most popular items to get you started.
