I started railway modelling in the early 1960s, so the layouts that stick in my mind are from that era but, that said, I don't know if I'm really trying to emulate them. They are P D Hancock's Craig and Mertonford and Dave Howsam's original version of Porthleven. Another one that I dismissed at the time but now find fascinating (although with its emphasis on timetable operation, it is not the sort of layout I am aiming at) is the Sherwood Section of the LMS.

Hmm going back to the sixties the one layout that I recall best was 'Buckingham' a GCR layout featured in Railway Modeller a couple of times and made by Peter Denny commencing in the 1940's surely the most iconic layout, I used to like to image how trains were handled Buckingham being a terminal station and thus different to fathers layout which is closer to my current Towcaster., in fact his layout was called Ramsfield and other stations named after the places in the books of Thomas Armstrong such as The Crowthers of Bankdam. Good times!
