Brandbright has a new owner! Unfortunately, he has to place it in store for a while until he can get it up and running. Consequently, we have removed all items for sale, until they are available again.

Andrew would thank you for your custom and the many friendships he has made since he bought the business from Richard and Shirley who had started making and supplying garden railway items as Brandbright Limited in 1983, and we look forward to Ken taking Brandbright to the next level.


Welcome to the website and online Shop of Brandbright Ltd.

We are manufacturers, retailers and hobbyists since 1983. Old fashioned service – and all you require to recreate in your garden, the nostalgia and charm of steam railways in 16mm : ft scale.

This is the world of large scale model railways – a world where steam engines can be real steam, where wheels really go clickety-clack over the rail joints and you feel as though you are in charge of a real train.

Since the early eighties, Brandbright have specialised in supplying and manufacturing 16mm to the foot scale narrow gauge model railway equipment. Whatever your needs, Brandbright provides a friendly and reliable service to ‘garden-sized’ modellers world-wide. The factory, a former village school, is totally dedicated – along with it’s staff – to garden sized railways. We do not operate as a shop. Being garden railway enthusiasts ourselves, we appreciate the modellers requirements, and try to fulfil these, rather than hard sell inappropriate equipment.

We take pride in the quality of our products and with our policy of supplying a choice, we can supply all your needs including locos, rolling stock, track and a host of accessories. The choice is important, Brandbright both manufacture and also retail other manufacturers products so as to be able to offer the right product for your particular needs.

This www site contains our 16mm scale, range much of which is compatible with Gauge 3 and its narrow gauge version (G scale) – a range which is constantly expanding!

For garden sized narrow gauge, the normally used track gauges are 32mm and 45mm, which correspond to Gauge 0 and Gauge 1. There is great compatibility between 16mm scale, G scale and Gauge 3.

We hope you will enjoy visiting our site, and that you will find it useful when ordering your live steam or garden railway equipment from Brandbright. Our customers congratulate us on our speedy and efficient service, and we take pride in combining this with the courtesy reminiscent of long gone days when steam engines ruled the rails. We are convinced that you will not find a better range or service than that from Brandbright.
