If you have a model train village you’re looking to expand then be sure to check out our Trains & Models section. We have a wide range of Hornby OO gauge carriages as well as some interesting OO gauge steam locomotives. For example, in this section on the Perfect Pieces website you will currently find a lovely Trix Trains A H Peppercorn LNER 525 engine & tender still in its original box!
We also currently have for a sale a CORGI Original Omnibus OM41404 AEC Regent double decker model bus. This is a 1:76 scale bus which is the same as the OO gauge so is perfect for OO gauge model railway villages.
This is an original OO gauge steam train in its original box. It is an LNER 525 Peppercorn 4-6-2 steam engine with an 8-wheeled tender. Both the locomotive and the tender are in a striking deep green colour. This model steam train has been tested and is in full working order and runs very well. It would be a perfect addition to any model enthusiast’s creation.
We have a wide range of OO gauge engines and carriages as well as OO gauge 1:76 model buses and trams – all perfect for your railway models!
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!
