Welcome to BigTrainSound.co.uk – the home of Bespoke Platform Announcements and Background Soundscapes

Here at BigTrainSound we offer bespoke recorded products to help bring your model railway to life.  Whether you are looking for platform announcements specific to the trains that you run; a specially recorded soundscape to portray the nature of, and activity on your layout, or both, we will be delighted to help you


We have access to an extremely large library of recorded sounds and effects, and in the unlikely event that it is missing a particular sound, we have the equipment and ability to record from life to fill that gap.

Of the many enquiries and commissions that we have been involved with, there has yet to be a scenario that we have not be able to create to our customer’s satisfaction.  This has included a World War One Somme Railhead; several projects for the LocoLadies of “The Great British Railway Challenge” fame; a number of soundscapes for exhibition layouts including Graham “Muz” Muspratt’s superb “Canute Road Quay”; a full layout sound of a mid 196o’s Devon mainline station running diesel and steam trains; and a full set of platform announcements for a modern day station layout set in the North of England

We are delighted to number clients from all parts of the United Kingdom, the USA, Australasia, Belgium, France and Canada, and pride ourselves in going the extra mile to ensure that every single client gets the product they are looking for, professionally recorded, in a timely manner and, we hope, at an extremely reasonable cost
