APA Park, Model Railway in an APA Box


Materials: APA Box, LEDBERG lights

Removing the front panel from an APA box creates a handy size self contained baseboard for a model railway project. add a new base to box out of 9mm plywood on one inch square block and you are ready to lay track. I used the lid to create ‘off scene’ storage and joined this to the main box using toggle catches. The Railway is fully operational and uses N scale off the shelf products and is the current (2014) holder of the N Gauge society ‘Graham Farish Trophy’ for the best portable layout.


The LEDBERG lighting unit can be fixed along the top support to provide adequate lighting in the box once complete
