Welcome to Poppy’s website for model railway kits. Our aim is to help you create your model railway with a little more enjoyment, for example, making tough tasks (loco building) and repetitive jobs (station valance) a pleasure. Please browse our pages and products, we hope there is something here for everyone.

Our tools help you to set the standards for your railway, to achieve better running, realistic clearances and benchmarks for the lifetime of your hobby. Look for our NEW Workbench range to help keep you tidy and organised.

Our range of in-stock Loco Builder Boxes continues to grow, ** New; our famous Loco Builder Box - now available in Gauge 1 **

Our kits are simple to build and easily adaptable to be useful in all types of layouts and dioramas. We supply you high-quality laser cut components that are consistent in size, made to fit together easily using the simplest of techniques and basic tools, and suit your layout design and requirements. We use the technology of the laser to remove the repetition and add enjoyment for those not so easy tasks.

All our products are made for modellers by modellers. We have designed and built every one of our kits. We know they can give you good results and we can advise how to get the best from them and how they can be used together for effective results.

You don’t have to paint our kits to look like wood – because they are. For our wooden kits we use top quality birch plywood to resemble scale thickness components with a fine grain that looks most realistic.

Our policy of 'Modeller's rates' on postage remains, we wouldn't charge you more than we would expect to pay!
