MVL Bridges produce a range of sturdy model bridges constructed from various small size aluminium sections. Although not based on any specific full size originals the bridges are mainly intended for the small gauge scenic garden railway. Models are offered in standard lengths but we specialise in bespoke sizes and designs. We continue to develop new designs which bring character and individuality to the miniature line.

Most railways require a bridge at some point.

From simple spans crossing tiny streams to immense lofty viaducts. Railway builders have tackled these obstacles with imagination and ingenuity.

Although originally intended for narrow gauge layouts our designs have proved popular with standard gauge modellers in various scales.

We aim to offer genuine elements of full size practice and narrow gauge individuality. Our bridges provide the best compromise between an acceptable, authentic scaled down appearance and value for money.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: MARCH 2020 Coronavirus Update As far as circumstances allow I am continuing to construct bridges remaining in the Order Book. Please check the current status of orders here Unfortunately NE Powder Coaters have closed until further notice. LOOKING AHEAD: Positive News for the Future A year ago I closed the Order Book in order to address the huge backlog of orders. I also planned to review the future of producing bridges commercially. Largely as a result of the current situation I am actually making good progress. Whilst it may be some while before life returns to 'normal' in 6 months or so I may be in a position to accept a limited number of new orders. Michael Leckenby

ALUMINIUM SUPPLIES FOR DO-IT-YOURSELF BRIDGES Extremely competitively priced aluminium sections ideal for having a go at designing and building your own railway structures


We have been under pressure for some time to upgrade the website. I have resisted this for as long as possible as it will mean redesigning large sections of the site. The time has come however to bite the bullet. We apologise for any difficulty in using the site during the development work.


Over the last ten years we have accumulated rather a lot of aluminium off cut sections, particularly Tee section, which we are unlikely to use. Most are less than 500mm in length. Contact us for details if you are interested in a bargain.

We have supplied several bridges to the Kintyre Light Railway in Hull. They provide a superb illustration of how the different designs will enhance a railway. The bridges also help to show how a powder coated finish can change the appearance of a bridge.

Please note due to the number of nuisance sales calls we do not answer withheld and out of area calls but we will always respond when genuine enquiries are left.
