Modelling the North British Railway

These pages have been produced to assist modellers to identify ready-to-run models, kits for locomotives and rolling stock, and parts that will help them recreate the NBR in model form.

At present the information is confined to 4mm (00, EM and P4 gauges) and 7mm (0 and S7 gauges). If you know of any models in other scales, please use the contact page to get in touch with the webmaster.
