The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Standing by at Brookhampton.
Another picture from the Brookhampton archives. This shows a reserve Dennis F12 covering for one of Kingsdon's appliances which is providing standby cover at Brookhampton.
This Dennis F12 has been indentified as VYA999 which was never allocated to Kingsdon. It was new to Houndstone in 1956 and was transfered to reserve in 1966 and was sold for preservation in 1972.
The Dennis F12 is a modified Corgi Trackside model, the cars are by Classix and Oxford Diecast while the buildings are Hornby Scaledale models.
