Low Relief Model Railroad Buildings

Including low relief structures can really add dimension and perspective to a model railroad. Basically, a low relief building (also called flats)is a structure that usually only has 1 or 3 sides. These kits are generally positioned against a backdrop to give the appearance of full size buildings in the distance with trains operating in foreground.

These model railroad kits will add amazing realism to a diorama or railroading scene, and yet they are very inexpensive and easy to construct. You simply choose a kit from the wide selection for sale on this modelbuildings.org website, download it to your computer, then print it out (on A4 paper), glue it onto some cardstock (old cereal boxes are perfect), fold and glue it together. It’s that easy to build (no painting required) – you could construct a whole miniature railroad town scene for less than the cost of a couple of plastic model kits!

Easy to scale: All model train structures are in OO scale, so you simply alter your print settings as follows: 

 

  • OO scale is 100%  
  • HO scale reduce the print to 87%  
  • S scale enlarge the print to 118%  
  • Z scale reduce the print to 35%  
  • N scale reduce the print to 48%

Assembling the Signal Box B432

The wonderful world of model trains is truly amazing with the versatility that comes with creating your very own miniature world.  Although you can buy almost everything you will need from a local hobby store or online train supplier, there is one essential item that can’t be bought or sold… that’s your imagination!

Designing and constructing your own railroad layout can be a real thrill. This wonderful hobby truly has something for everyone. Model building, art, woodworking, electrics and electronics, mechanics, all of these can be found somewhere on your railroad layout.

Realistic scenery brings a railroad to life

Scenery is what ultimately distinguishes a model railroad from a toy train set. Scenery is about the setting and telling a story about the trains and the landscape they travel through.

Scenery is how you choose to really showcase what you’ve created. It can be a product of your own skills and unique imagination, and there’s nothing more gratifying than to look over your miniature world and think proudly, “I created all this!” Your powers of observation will be exercised and honed as you learn the techniques and become aware of all of the minute details that surround you in the real world and try to create them in miniature.

While many model railroads are never completely finished, adding some good scenery and structures can go a long way to giving that 'finished' look.

When constructing your layout you will develop many new skills, or at the very least refine some of your existing skills. Take it from me; there is a huge level of satisfaction in being able to create, or construct something yourself, especially when you are able to do it for less money than it would cost you to purchase the plastic kits and scenery ready-made. It is also a good skill to be able to customize something enabling it to fit into a specific location on your railroad. These are certainly skills well worth developing.

If you are looking to buy plastic kits, or model railroad buildings from cardstock, or purchasing laser cut railroad buildings... then consider these railroad structures as a cost effective high quality alternative. They are not just plans, but are complete printable designs delivered by instant download directly to your computer... so you can make as many copies as you want from the one download. Simply print them on the paper or card of your choosing. You can adapt them to fit whatever scene scenario you are modeling.

The printable model kits for sale here are easy to assemble, extremely strong when constructed, and are already pre weathered so there is no painting required. When you look through the designs on this website you'll see how amazingly realistic these downloadable card kit railroad structures are, and how easy they are to build from scratch. They'll look great on a layout with trains operating in the scene.

You can make your scale buildings from cardstock, foam, or corflute. You can simply assemble them or add additional internal strengthening if you want to make your buildings super strong. Basswood, balsawood, corflute, and foam are ideal materials for making bases, floors, or adding internal supports to walls or roofs. Doing this is a really easy process and will ensure your railroad station, signal box, or any model railway buildingwithstands the test of time.

Weathering like on a real railroad

If there’s one thing you’ll observe when planning your railroad, it’s that the rest of the world (in real life) is definitely not well maintained. In real life, buildings not only fade, but also fall into disrepair, neglect and outright dilapidation. The areas around real prototype railroads can be particularly dirty as a result of diesel or stream trains passing by. If you place a group of shiny new rolling stock and new-looking structures on your layout, you’ll never escape the toy like appearance of the miniatures.

As a modeler, realism is usually a high priority. So, if you want the scene to look authentic, you’ll need to be prepared to make that shiny new Bachmann locomotive or caboose positively grimy to get the right effect.  Almost nothing outside in the real world is clean, and that is the philosophy you might want to keep in mind for your layout as well.  Railroad operators (in the real world) are notoriously cost conscious, so they seldom spend money sprucing up the rolling stock and motive power, or their buildings and structures either! The technique of weathering can effectively and believably enhance the realism of any scene.

Making your railroad your own

The end result is in your hands, because ultimately you are creating YOUR RAILROAD. For that reason it should to be a layout you will enjoy constructing and operating. What others in the hobby might think about your techniques doesn’t really matter. It is your choice as to how accurately (or not) you choose to follow the theme and specific details of a prototype railroad. Your railroad layout needs to be what you personally want (not what others might prefer).

The various operating scenarios will need to keep you interested especially when you have completed the construction phase. That’s not to say you won’t notice many things you could do (or might have done) differently. Truth is; your model railroad will probably be a permanent work in progress… so enjoy the journey!
