Display Tracks

Finely engineered railway models deserve presentation on equally fine railway display tracks, whether in an exhibition, museum or home living environment.

EMA Heritage produces exhibition and museum quality model railway track displays and dioramas for customers with finescale locomotives and rolling stock in larger model railway and model engineering scales / gauges - Gauge 'O', SM32, Gauge 1, G45, Gauge 3, 3½ inch and 5 inch.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Scenic modules, ballasted and weathered

  • Standard or Narrow Gauge outline

  • Polished hardwood edge frame

  • Baize felt or cork pads added to underside

  • Optional acrylic covers

Custom size base units can be made-to-order with edge frames in a choice of hardwoods, typically Oak, Sapele or Tulipwood. We also have our cost-effective stock size base units (see table below).

Modules have scale ballast / surface materials suited to the customer-specified model environment (e.g. running line, siding, 'On Shed').

Rusting and weathering is simulated by spray and hand painting the rail, chairs, sleepers and ballast.

Hand-grained sleepers and multiple layers of finer surface detail can be added to increase realism.

Scroll through the galley to view example display tracks in different gauges.

We also accept commissions for display bases and cases with plain unpainted track and ballast.

COMPLETION TIMES & DELIVERY:

IMPORTANT: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and travel, meeting and other restrictions imposed by local and national governments, the completion time of orders is likely to be longer and the collection / posting / delivery of orders is likely to be impacted. Where necessary, we will retain completed orders ready for collection / posting / delivery when the relevant restrictions are lifted.

Completion time for custom size display tracks can be up to 16 weeks depending on the lead time of the base / case supplier, and for stock size display tracks can be up to 8 weeks. We do normally have a small selection of finished display tracks available for immediate purchase - please see below.

Due to the fragile nature of larger display tracks and covers, they are not suited to delivery by standard parcel carriers. We therefore ask customers where possible to collect their order from our address in Alton (Hampshire). A door-to-door delivery service to many (but not all) parts of England & Wales can be arranged at cost.

For smaller, less fragile products, we normally package and post by tracked and insured Royal Mail / Parcelforce services.

Please see our standard full Terms and Conditions which apply to our promotion and supply of products and services described in our website.
