Are you particularly proud of your layout handiwork?! We would love to see your layout and even showcase it here for all to see and admire! If your photo happens to include a KMRC Exclusive - well we won't be complaining! Please send photos into firstname.lastname@example.org and pop in the subject line 'FAO Hayley Newsletter'.
Keep an eye out on new layouts appearing weekly! Please note that it is me, Hayley, so don't expect any 'professional' opinions :)
Mr Mytton has sent in these photos of our Warship on his superb layout! He has it at 'Sommercourt Junction' and in the countryside working the Cornish Riviera Express. Mr Mytton also has it assisting a later Warship! He mentioned that his wife, when younger, had her house backing on to the railway in Penponds, so would have seen these Warships in her childhood. We are glad to hear you got your hands on one!
Mr Gower has sent in a photo of his Intercity Swallow HST Buffered power cars on his layout 'Fox Hill Junction'. Very impressive layout I must say! We featured Mr Gower's Stephenson's Rocket previously and I can spot it looking lovely in the background:
Here are three photos of Mr Lowery's N gauge layout, that he calls Dwarfdale (as you can imagine the Leprechauns living there) all the way from Japan! This is only 1/3 of his layout as he plans to build an OO gauge (with lots of our engines and an HO American one). He has adapted Japanese buildngs, scratch built castle ruins, has various figures and a Kato sound box for all the 'chuffs'! Plus - he has painted some of his back scenes - no end to your talents! Mr Lowery plans to complete it all in 3 years - you have got this!
Thank you for showing us your D601 on your layout Mr Allin - she's a right beauty!:
If this doesn't put a smile on your face... well! It seems there is a keen Model Railway enthusiast, with a large bushy tail, in Mr Grant's neighbourhood! This OO gauge outdoor layout (which Mr Grant mentioned has never been fully completed!) rests quietly during the dark months of the year but has this little visitor:
It's CHRISTMAS... on Mr Boffy's layout :) I love this! What a cheery sight!:
Here are a few shots of Mr Read's fantastic layout 'Bridport Junction'. He says it is set on a fictional route (proposed but never built) from Dorchester to Exeter. He has the ballast left to do but he has been putting that off for several years - you can do it Mr Read!:
This splendid micro layout is 'Morfa Town', a fictitious town in mid Wales built by Mr Coote. What a harddwch!:
This 6803 Bucklebury Grange stops for water at Mr Wall's Stourbridge Junction layout:
Mr Krill has kindly sent in these photos of this wonderful 6ft OO gauge layout 'Astley Bridge'!. It is a joint DRS/GBRf depot somewhere in the East Midlands with a small wagon maintenance facility. It was constructed two years ago by Mr Wright of The Little Layout Company, and many of the locos have been weathered and detailed by Mr Wright himself. What great detail!:
Mr Mathieson's ‘Chalford’ layout, a work in progress, is closely based on Chalford in the Golden Valley between Stroud and Kemble. Looking fantastic!:
Mr Young has sent in further photos (including fantastic descriptions) of his brilliant layout. I particulary like seeing our 'Active' looking splendid:

Graham's latest re-naming is of a King Arthur class 30799 Sir Ironside to 30804 SIR CADOR OF CORNWALL. It was an Eastleigh 71A loco so suits his theme and, as Graham mentioned, also retained its 6 wheeled tender to the end (Feb 1962).

Short of local milk for the production of their clotted cream, two famous Cornish dairies have dispatched tankers to collect milk from Hemyock.
Arriving at Hemyock with a load of dairy produce for distribution under the United Dairies banner, another famous Cornish dairy's vent van is followed by a GWR Toad, branded "Hayle RU". It has just passed the PW Gang fully equipped with it's Holman/Compair compressor.
Four of Mr Warren's hobbies captured in one photo - railway modelling/caravanning/South West Dairies and Morris Dancing!
A busy morning in the Creamery yard.
