About

Welcome to Gravella, the HO scale model city
This website was recently launched and is still being created. Please excuse any dead links.

Gravella is my HO scale model railroad layout. Some of it influenced by real world prototypes, while other parts are completely made up. The layout is a work in progress and may never be fully completed. But, after all, isn’t that what a model railroad layout is.

Some of our Rolling Stock

Subway trains are Walthers’ Washington DC (WMATA) Metrorail cars, operating by DCC. LEDs installed for headlights and taillights, and color lights indicating the line the train serves. Subway station designs are inspired by the Washington Metro.

Commuter rail trains are Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) rolling stock. F40 and GP40-MC locomotives as well as an AEM-7 electric locomotive (though no prototype one exists). Passenger cars consist of the single level Horizon coaches and cab cars from Walthers, and bi-level Kawasaki coaches and cab car from Island Modelworks.
