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.

St Niklaus by David Coates

St. Niklaus is an N gauge layout representing a fictitious German ski resort near the Austrian border. It is served by local trains from Oberstdorf and through trains going across the border and on to Vienna. Skiers alight here and take the local shuttle train to the station at Heidschott to get the ski lift to the top of the ski slopes.  

The layout was featured in Continental Modeller January 2008, and on the Railway ModellerContinental Modeller CD in January 2008.

Symonds Green Brewery by Lynda Coates

Symonds Green is a fictitious brewery near Hull in North Yorkshire, Hull was the centre of a large brewery industry in the 19th and early 20th century.

Symonds Green Brewery has been established for over 200 years, this is represented by the old brewery building behind the administrative building. The main brewery complex dates from the mid Victorian era where breweries became ornate but functional buildings designed by top architects of their day.

The narrow gauge railway enables the transportation of materials around the site and between the nearby villages and farms. The canal provides transportation of various other materials and goods. Although the era represented today is 1950’s, we are hoping to be able to represent the 1930’s on this layout when horse power and canals were a more important part of the industrial scene.
