 Every one no doubt as their own favourite layout that for whatever reasons ticked all the right boxes and for me that is Phil's 'Pen Y Bryn' 00 Gauge Layout. There's just a certain magic about it, a feel good factor, makes me want to come out of retirement, but if I do, Phil might have some explaining to do to my wife !

So Guys, what layout/s inspired you ?

Thanks for the photo tour Mike, a real education.

My favourite was my late friend Graham Jowett-Ives layout "HANNAM WEST" on MRF. (The only reason I stayed on the forum)
A great artist  and modeller and a sad loss.

Unwittingly I had pulled out one of my Railway Modeller magazines a few days ago to look at a Western in one of the articles. and I have been looking through it over the past few days and have re-read that article on Hannem Central , I was think to my self what a lovely layout, so many times I see a layout and I find it bores me for no fault but my own, Don't know why, but Hannem Central really intruiges me. Funny it should get mentioned

Apart from the beautiful layouts that adorn the pages of YMR, Pen y Bryn, Much Murkle, Newcastle Emlyn, Bears End, Bickley Central and many more, I was looking for inspiration to build a layout for my son some time back, I came across these layouts.

Hamworthy Old Poole - http://www.mrol.com.au/Layouts/Hamworthy%20Old%20Poole/Hamworthy_Old_Poole.aspx

Wennin - http://www.mrol.com.au/Layouts/Wennin/Wennin.aspx

Must admit though, it was Nick's Much Murkle that brought me to YMR in the first place...

Gary, I'd agree Hamworthy has some very good modelling, however having lived in Poole for most of my 70+ years, I can say it's nothing like the prototype, and nor is most of the stock protoypical of the area. We never saw any ex SECR locos, and a Schools bound for Waterloo was most unlikely to have LMS coaches, they would have gone to/come from the Midlands via the S&DJR. The LSWR gate stock stayed further west than Poole, think Yeovil and points west thereof.

So yes the model is good but not prototypical, I always think that if a layout is named after an actual town then it should stick a little closer to the prototype.  Maybe I'm a nit picking old fart, but it's just the way I think. (we could start a whole thread on this!)

Early inspirational layouts for me were

Reading in RM and other magazines about;
Charford
Buckingham
North Devonshire railway
Berrow

Operating on Gainsborough MRS Kings Cross to Leeds O gauge layout

More lately seeing;
Kyle of Tongue
Hursley
Ditchling Green
Cornwallis Yard

and probably my all time favourite
The chronicles of Penhydd

There are many more I could mention particularly from the early days that got me hooked on model railways.

For me it has to be Tetley Mills and Dewsbury Midland with Bacup from Jason Thomas. Northern grit at their best!
