MODEL rail­way en­thu­si­asts old and young went along to an an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion. The Bea­cons­field Model Rail­way Club held the event on Satur­day, July 4 at the Bea­cons­field School in Wat­tle­ton Road.

Peo­ple were able to look at a to­tal of 17 dif­fer­ent lay­outs of rail­way scenes, and there was also the chance for en­thu­si­asts to pur­chase new equip­ment for their col­lec­tions.

The lay­outs took on dif­fer­ent themes, in­clud­ing an in­dus­trial site, vil­lage rail­way themes, and both old fash­ioned steam as well as mod­ern elec­tric trains on show.

They also showed dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions from around the world, in­clud­ing Ja­pan and Amer­ica, as well as a va­ri­ety of UK based scenes.
