    Yes, maybe I should just dive in, and do something Southern to make use of all the lovely new stuff that is about from Ed and Camscott.

    To use an English football analogy, we are used to seeing the marvellous "Premier Division" routes that are created so I thought I would spoil things by showing some of my "League Division Two" creations. Please don't be too critical as I try my best but lack the artistic skill of others. Most of my layouts are based on layouts in magazines.

    Hook Basin (009)


    Vale of Talynog (009)


    Trehilli


    Eusdore LBSCR (Thecatenary and 3rd rail are in separate layers)


    Eusdore SR


    And just because I had to do it; a representation of the Hornby Dublo layout in the 1939 Hornby Book of Trains.


    I am putting some of my American attempts in the other thread.

    Nice work John. Seeing your version of the classic Hornby Dublo layout made me smile. I particularly liked your Vale of Talynog layout with the town enclosing the railway.

    Alternative Broad Gauge GWR on 'Lynborough'. The 'Sharpie' 4-2-4T is a complete 'what-if' fabrication.

    Some more shots of Kotangagirl's "Lynborough" Broad Gauge layout. A quick round trip by passenger, with apologies to my British friends for any "faux pas" in selection or arrangement of loco and rolling stock!

    The Lord of the Isles lined up in Lynborough:



    Out of the tunnel:



    Round the corner:



    Across the viaduct:


    Into the village:


    View from the bridge:


    Back out to the countryside:


    Through the gates of a rural crossing:


    Return to Lyborough:

    Nice Forester. Always good to see someone enjoying one of my layouts. Might be a good idea to turn off fog though otherwise it looks like the model railway club has lots of pipe smokers in its membership.

    It seems that I haven't visited this thread since 27th April - very remiss of me - but I would just like to say how impressed I am by all the screenshots since then, especially the collection of layouts by teddytoot - I'm totally amazed that so many varied layouts can be created in a short time by one person - they just make me realise how slow I am!

    Thanks Ann. I had not even paid attention as I was so engrossed with the layout itself and making the run, but I will have to go back and revisit that. I guess being England it should either be none or much more?

    No, they have been created and updated over the years. The Vale of Talynog in fact began in 2012 in Trainz 2010. I just decided on a whim to show shots of my efforts both here and in the other thread.

    Thanks, John. I too have several begun some time ago but they never seem to get finished when the next new version comes along. For example, Glavenford towards the beginning of this thread. But I've enjpyed creating part layouts ...

    Various snaps taken while I was testing 'Minories'.
