More than £100 was raised at an annual event to restore a room within March station in a bid to turn it into a permanent model railway area.

Around 200 people visited the historic station on Saturday March 3 for a model railway exhibition and the chance to see work carried out by the Friends of March Station to restore the old station room interiors.

It was one of the three events organised by the volunteer group throughout the year to showcase the work they do as station adopters and raise money for further improvements.

The event raised £140 which will be used to complete the internal work.

Paul Haynes, Greater Anglia’s community partnerships manager, said: “We are very grateful to the Friends of March station for their hard work which has brought real benefits to the community by bringing these disused rooms back into use.”
