Description Model railroading (US) or Railway Modeling (UK, Australia, Ireland, and Canada) is a hobby in which rail transport systems are modeled at a reduced scale, or ratio. The scale models include locomotives, rolling stock, streetcars, tracks, signaling, roads, buildings, vehicles, model figures, lights, and features such as streams, hills and canyons.

The earliest model railways are the 'carpet railways' in the 1840s. Electric trains appeared around the turn of the 20th century. But these were crude likenesses. Model trains today are more realistic. Today modelers create model railway / railroad layouts, often recreating real locations and periods in history.
