What we do

Far Beyond Rails LLC in Port Richey, Florida specializes in the design and building of model railroad layouts from Z-scale to G-scale using a modular approach. This website shows you - among other useful features - how our Standard N-scale layouts interconnect and thus allow a customer to build and expand his empire at affordable cost over time.

Hobbyists are more than welcome to inquire for a custom designed model railroad layout. Our process is transparent and easy to follow, and our rates are affordable while maintaining fair delivery times for both partners.

FBR also has a gallery showing past and current projects, plus a Model Railroad section with valuable information for novices and "old hands" alike.
