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.
