Visitors flocked to the March and District Model Railway Club’s 10th anniversary exhibition held at the Westwood School on Saturday.

There were 18 lay-outs on display brought along by clubs from as far afield as Northamptonshire, Norfolk and Essex.

The March club had three lay-outs.

Club chairman Keith Sharpe said the day was ‘very successful’ with the Nene Sidings shunting puzzle operated by visitors being particularly popular with the crowds.

The event was officially opened by local MP Steve Barclay who was impressed with the numerous displays, some of which were fictitious locations and others, like one based on the Shell Haven in Essex, real lines.

Mr Sharpe said the canteen selling various refreshments did a roaring trade and the tombola, with prizes donated by members and traders, was also well supported.

The club’s next function is on October 8 and the Millview Scout Hut and will be the club’s open day.
