Immingham Depot is one of three inspirational feature layouts in HM155 – on sale now.

Features in this cover Ron Bailes 7mm scale multi-gauge layout Cherry Orchard which has both standard gauge and narrow gauge railways. We also journey to North Lincolnshire to see Immingham Museum’s impressive ‘OO’ gauge model of Immingham Depot – our cover feature – while Railway Realism looks back at the history of Immingham Docks to explain why it was so important to the railway. The third of our layout features is a compact Scottish Region branchline terminus built by Thistle Modelmakers – a layout that could be built at home in a spare room.

Plus we have five projects to inspire your modelling covering weathering, rolling stock construction, scenery, digital sound and road vehicles.

Making a Scene shows how to build a garden in ‘OO’. Visit to see a full step by step guide and time-lapse build video.
