Penfro Models have a large G "3" & Gauge "1" outdoor railway, so all materials have been tested to withstand the elements, including 12 degrees below, frosts etc. We also test to ensure that the model buildings, fences, figures, animals withstand a certain amount of being knocked about and being dropped- within reason without breakages. Our G scale railways have been outside for some considerable years and we have been successful with just a good wash now and again, giving a touch of paint- good quality model enamels seem to do the trick on the figures and buildings etc.

The back of most garden railway model buildings are screwed on so that you can add more details inside, like signal boxes, low relief, houses and shops. We also supply butcher figures, model meat for display etc, figures in the phone boxes if required, post boxes. These models are approximately 1/24th scale  or 1/32 scale, with slight variations, but don't look out of place on the G scale G"3" or Gauge "1"
