Lynth-Haven by Darren Bilcock

A fictitious railway some where on the LMS line. In the best spirit of model railways, and in his own words...
"Lynth-haven is a fictitious railway some where on the LMS line. I must admit that I have not followed an era or location closely. Someone told me that the colour of stone reminds them of Scotland so I opened up a map of Scotland and stuck a pin in it at few times, amalgamated some town names and came up with Lynth-Haven."
The layout was featured in the March 2011 issue of Railway Modeller.

Chelworth by Bryn Dawes

Chelworth a terminus station at the end of a GWR branch line. It is based around 1930 to 1940. The layout has a two platform station, and a small goods / coal yard and loco shed. Trains enter the layout, from the fiddle yard, via one of two tunnels. 

The engine shed is two-road, capable of holding two tender locomotive or four tank engines depending on their size. The signal box can be seen in the foreground and the shed office and workshop on the right. A view from the opposite side includes the water tower.

The layout uses Peco flexi-track and turnouts with electro frogs. It is DC operated with switched sections, the turnouts are not motorised. It was never designed for exhibitions but purely home enjoyment so the setup requires more operational activities making it fun to operate.

The buildings are mostly Ratio and Wills plastic kits. The Shed office and workshop are scratch-built along with some of the line-side huts.
