Hornby model railway Baseboard system

Building your HM model railway Baseboard from a supplied kit

Our model railway baseboard kit is particularly suited to those who want a single-piece baseboard for a Hornby layout.
Aimed at starters using a typical Hornby trainset, the standard HM baseboard kit provides a 1.8M x 1.2M board which folds flat for storage. It is intended to accommodate Hornby's trackmat but could be used for any model railway track layout which can be fitted on that board size. Other modular baseboards are available from HM at 8 Front Road Woodchurch, Ashford, Kent TN26 3QE by special request.
