Barry Tabor said: “A great local show, plenty of room, a great job done by all involved, not forgetting those responsible for the refreshments and cooking.

“Highlights were many a brilliant, but stand-out layouts I would like to mention were Nene Sidings and the fantastic Trinity Dock Street Bridge.

“A great setup by a small, local body of men and ladies.”

The group originally started in 2002 as a meeting in the King William pub in March.
