Hello, we are Mike & Douglas and welcome to budget model railways! Budget model railways is a YouTube channel for those interested in making model railways ( or railroads for our American friends) on a limited budget. This will cover both buildings, scenery, rolling stock and locos. It will have a sub plot on making freelance layouts. Basically I'm interested in making model railways for a lot less and using simpler methods. I've also realised that many people are put off making their own layout because of cost, time and space problems and I hope to show how to overcome all of these. It wont be about really fine scale modelling but about getting something acceptable to run your loco collection on. Please do comment as I don't know if I am the only one who does not want to spend thousands of pounds and take ten years to build a layout.
