The Dream Begins With Us!

Starting out as RailDreams® in 1994 and then RailWorld, Master Model Railroad Consulting Services builds award-winning model railroads for commercial display, museums and individuals. Under the founding leadership of Richard Taylor, we develop innovative techniques and modern materials for layout construction that result in solid, lightweight and portable model railways.

Richard is a National Master Railroad Association Master Model Railroader—an achievement of excellence earned by fewer than 600 people. He and boyhood friend Don Stanger head up a team that creates layouts that are one-of-a-kind, custom works of art. Richard and Don grew up in a small town in Michigan and spent countless hours fascinated with model railroading. In 2009, Richard moved to sunny Southwest Florida where Don was already living for several years. Four years later, they launched Master Model Railroad Consulting Services.

Our designs and layouts reflect each owner’s personal vision combined with the historical, geographical, railroad knowledge and artistic skills of the professional Master Model team members and builders. We consider the era that the model depicts, the season of the year and the environment of the area that the railroad serves. When you come to us for a custom, handmade model railroad that you’ll be proud to own, know it was built with passion, precision and expert craftsmanship!
