NEW - Right Track Range of DVD's now available
DVD's - Now actually available to purchase (we no longer offer the streamed download)
We have added the majority of the Right Track series of Railway Modelling DVD's to our range. These are a must for modellers who are new to the hobby, as well as providing tips for even the most experienced old hands! Why not ask someone in your family to order you one for Xmas - it will be far more rewarding and informative than the normal TV shows available over the holiday period! There are a few other titles that are available which we can obtain if required.
Pictures showing the front covers will be added shortly.
Track Laying DVD - by Norman Solomon
We have arranged for this DVD to be made available once again - the original run having sold out some years ago. We had previously made it available as a download, but unfortunately there were problems that we were not able to overcome i.e. not available outside the UK. The DVD was made some years ago by Norman Solomon who has been a professional track builder for over 30 years.

What is covered?
Good trackwork is the most important foundation for good running and Norman Solomon is the nation’s foremost exponent in the art of making and laying the permanent way.
Norman’s trackwork, in all scales and gauges, has provided the basis for some of the finest model railways ever made.
In conversation with Tony Wright, Norman explains how he achieves such excellent trackwork from basic principles to complex junction configurations.
Peco trackwork is probably the world’s favourite trackwork and Norman shows how to improve the running and reliability of Peco turnouts by making small but important modifications.
He then prepares and lays a junction using Peco track and foam ballast.
Copper clad turnouts enable you to form a junction to your own design. Norman shows how to construct a copper clad turnout, including timbering, making the vee and fitting switch rails and the tie bar.
Next, we visit Norman’s workshop in Wiveliscombe where he designs and constructs an entire junction using C & L chairs and sleepers.
This junction then forms the basis for the final section which covers electrical isolation, preparing the track bed and ballasting.
This double-DVD pack contains a list of suppliers and a reference plan showing the components of a turnout.
Norman’s demonstrations are in OO gauge and his advice extends to all scales and gauges from N gauge to O gauge.
It’s all the Wisdom of Solomon. Indeed!
