Here are a few examples of our work

Burnden Park

This is a superb 4mm scale layout, where we had the pleasure to update the wiring and control system for DCC operation, including a custom circuit board to provide route selection for the fiddle yard. We also reprogrammed the DCC decoders in the fleet of locos for better operation.

Here is the feedback from the layout owner:

It is now over 3 months since your team came and worked on my Model Railway.

The work carried out was of the highest order totally changing and overhauling
my DCC system of operation. The new system has now been in operation for all
of those 3 months and not once has given any problems.

This new system is simplicity itself to operate, especially important to someone
as myself who is not particularly skilled in this area.

It was a joy to meet and work with your team.

The Model Railway, known as Bunden Park appeared in the May and June 2018
editions of British Railway Modeller.

Again many thanks to your excellent team - Gordon Hall

Here are a few more testimonials

RME have assisted me with my model railway layout over the last few years. They originally helped with the build of my revised layout when I moved to this area by laying track and especially with the wiring and electronics required to move from a dc layout using a physical control panel to operation of points and signals to a computer based system.

Since then i have had a change in my lifestyle which has required another location for my layout so they assisted with the subsequent dismantling of the layout into the 14 base boards it requires. During this period we/they tested using dcc instead of dc and have convinced me to change to dcc operation. At the moment they have assisted me and advised me on how the original wiring needed to modified for dcc operation.

They are currently still working on the electronics on the layout and as time allows fitting numerous dcc decoders to my extensive loco collection (collected over the past 50 or so years).

Over the past few years I have been very grateful for their work and advice provided and would recommend them to anyone wishing to use the services they have provided.

Chris, Pete and John at RME have been providing model railway construction services to me for several years now. They have rectified all of the prior electrical and wiring problems I was experiencing and have gone on to help me with baseboard construction, track laying and JMRI.

Their approach has been professional at all times and I would not hesitate to recommend them and their services to other modellers.

I first heard about RME from several other satisfied customers when I enquired about a company to help me build a new layout in OO. This was September 2020.

I received a helpful reply from one Chris Noble and then had several Zoom chats with both Chris, John and Peter. This resulted in a very fine layout plan that exactly met my needs.

I have now commissioned RME to build the baseboards and to attend my home and install and set up the basics.

I have regular Zoom meetings with the guys and always find it informative and find their enthusiasm infectious and their knowledge second to none.

I would have no hesitation at all in recommending their services.
