A new 'User Submissions' section is added to the layout plans page, showing the entries of the 2011 Layout Planning Competition.

The remainder of the Midland Railway's Settle to Carlisle route is completed, including a huge representation of Carlisle circa 1910.

A new 'Prototype Plans' section is added to the site, kicking off with
the Settle to Carlisle line as far as Appleby. 

April 2011
This month, three prototype plans are closely modelled: Mallaig in the 1970s, Shotton Steelworks, and Dover Priory. Thanks to Ozman2009 on the FreeTrackPlans Forum for suggesting the last one!
 
March 2011
Three more loft layouts are added in the shape of Euston to Manchester, Branch Line Border and Diagonal Station. All feature end-to-end running with a continuous run.
 
February 2011
Inverness, a 12x8.5 layout including Kyle of Lochalsh, is added to the site. Central Station and Two Reverse Loops complete February's update.
 
January 2011
Yet more classic plans are added, including a Through Terminus, Corner Station and Exchange Sidings. Three classic branch line termini are also included on this site for the first time. 
 
27th December 2010
New additions include a 'Geometry' page that illustrates many of the layout permutations of Hornby Setrack, and a selection of 'Basic Shapes' for model railways - accessible via the Track Plan Index.
 
20th December 2010
Five layouts have been chosen as the most inspirational layouts for those lucky enough to get a train set for Christmas - feel free to suggest any others that you think are suitable!
 
8th November 2010
Due to some technical difficulties, it's been a few weeks since the last few updates. Two more plans from the Bluebell Railway should make up for it - Kingscote and Horsted Keynes have been added to the database.
 
12th October 2010
Major revamp for the Index page and lots of new plans for your perusing. Plans have been sorted into 'Continuous', 'End-to-End' and 'Modular' designs to help you browse.
 
20th September 2010
New for this week are aerial photographs for all layouts where the prototype still exists!
 
17th September 2010
'Immingham' and 'Sandling HS1' should provide something for those who like modern traction - whether they want to run a large diesel depot or watch Eurostars and Javelins flying past.
 
2nd September 2010
Three busy layout plans are added for an 8x4 board, including 'Raised Station', 'Flyover' and 'End to End'.

After two separate requests, Goathland has been added to the '8 Feet Wide' section - a great prototype for a branch line model railway.
 
19th August 2010
Two additional plans have been added for the new '5 Feet Wide' section. 
 
6th August 2010
Dockside and Branch Line add two more ideas for the 4.5x3.5 size, both ideal as a first step up from the standard train set.
 
26th July 2010
Two smaller layouts are added, stretching the 4 feet wide with an extra 6 inches. 'Ardlui' and 'AC Depot' are layouts that I'm considering building at the moment!
 
15th July 2010
North Blyth and Mode Wheel plans should appeal to modellers of the industrial era, with loco depots provided on both layouts. On North Blyth, the ghostly Cambois depot takes centre stage, whilst Mode Wheel shed is also represented as part of the Manchester Ship Canal Railway.
 
9th July 2010
Two narrow gauge plans, using Peco's On30 track, are added in response to a request from Jack in Australia. Both are designs for his 6x4' board, and are based on the Welsh prototype.
