Display Tracks

Unfortunately we are not making new display tracks at present.  Our apologies for any disappointment.  We will update this notice when the position changes. We do have a small selection of finished display tracks available for purchase - see below.

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 scales / gauges:  Gauge O, SM-32, Gauge 1, G-45 and G Scale. 


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 image carousel to view example display tracks in different gauges.

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


Completion time for custom size display tracks can be up to 12 weeks depending on the lead time of the base / case supplier, and for stock size display tracks can be up to 6 weeks. However, we do normally have a small selection of finished display tracks available for immediate purchase - please see section 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 and in our promotional leaflets.
