  Wikinfo | Model railway   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Model railways are models of railways at a reduced scale, including both engines, carriages or rolling stock, tracks and associated buildings and scenery.
Model railways are a popular hobby, and involvement in it can range from the simple possession of a train set (especially by children), to spending many hours and large sums of money on custom layouts and scenery.
Generally speaking, the purpose of a model railway is to be interesting to see and to operate, whether the ‘interest’ depends on historical accuracy, fidelity to the appearance of the original, or complexity of operation.

 Operating Your Model Railway
The purpose of this article is to show that operating a model railway in a realistic manner is no harder than operating in the way that model railways are typically run.
Any layout which corresponds at least approximately to prototype railway practice can be operated in a realistic manner fairly easily all that is needed is to treat railway operation as another aspect of the model railway, along with the scenery etc, which needs to be 'built'.
To be able to operate a model railway in the most realistic way possible requires that operation be kept foremost in mind from the earliest design stages of model railway construction, however if the model railway is already partly or even completely built a reasonably realistic operating method can be still be devised.
