Diecast Models & OO Gauge Trains and Carriages – Do you have a model world somewhere?

On the Perfect Pieces website we have a large selection of diecast models and OO gauge trains and carriages for sale. Pieces range from Corgi limited edition model buses to fine Hornby and LIMA locomotives.

Trains and models are collected for all sorts of reasons but many people collect them to expand the model worlds they create. If you’ve never seen a model world then you’ll be amazed. The time, effort and detailing that goes into them can be superb. The National Railway Museum at York has a fine example stretching some distance through two galleries. This museum is certainly worth a trip even if you’re not an enthusiast. With free entry it really is fascinating and you can spend hours wandering around the full size locomotives, watching films and browsing the archives.

Steam Trains & Nostaliga…

There’s nothing like a steam train to create a glow of nostalgia and a sense of rail-born romance.

All over the UK, small groups of  enthusiasts keep old trains and short lines open through devoted volunteer efforts and by capturing the public’s desire to experience travel by steam train – especially in the countryside.

One of the best I’ve ever travelled on is the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, which runs from the market town of Pickering, through Goathland (of ITV Heartbeat fame) up to the village of Grosmont, in the heart of the Yorkshire Moors. The trains and stations have been really well preserved and vintage diesels are in use as well as steam engines.

If you are in the area, it is well worth a visit – even if you just stand at the station and admire the locomotives from the platform!
