Welcome to the Yatton Model Engineering website. For those who do not know me a little about myself.

Peter Lane has been a model railway enthusiast for some 60 years and as mark of his dedication still has his original 00 gauge locomotive in full working order! Little wonder then that some 10 years ago, having retired and not being able to find the variety or quality of rolling stock to purchase, he decided to manufacture his own.

Conventional model engineering methods were taking too long so a laser cutter was purchased to make better quality kits. These kits were launched at the 16mm Narrow Gauge Society show in 2011 at Stoneleigh. It was so successful that all of the kits sold out, and the orders took nearly two months to complete. Similar success followed at the 2012 show in Peterborough.


I aim to build scale models of prototypes in matching sets for the chosen periods so you can build representative trains.

I will also undertake a design and build service if you have a particular prototype in mind. Mind you if I build it I may market it.

The range is constantly expanding, see the news section, and I am sorry that I am not as diligent as I should be in keeping the web site up to date. You can always contact me if you are looking for new models!

Please review the current material in these pages –there is a contact form available if you wish to make an enquiry or of course telephone. We look forward to hearing from you.
