Model railway has been a popular hobby for generations, and the history of these railways is as rich and diverse as the history of Britain itself. From the earliest days of locomotives, to the modern day model railways have been a popular pastime in Britain.

The earliest model railways were made by the Victorians, who used them to recreate the scenes of the industrial revolution. These early model railways were made from wood and metal, and often featured complex track layouts and intricate scenery. The earliest model railways were often powered by clockwork or live steam, and were often extremely expensive to build.
