A massive Model Railway Show is steaming into the English Riviera on Saturday, July 22nd
It is an opportunity for model railway enthusiasts, both young and old, to see more than 12 model railway layouts in a variety of scales from tiny Z gauge to O Gauge.
The event is being held from 10am to 4.30pm at Churston Ferrers Grammar School. The English Riviera has a strong railway heritage especially with the Paignton and Dartmouth Railway.
This is a great opportunity for people to enjoy nostalgia in miniature, for others to learn about a new past-time or simply appreciate the care taken to create a Model Railway.
It is being supported by clubs and modellers from around the South West, with layouts including amongst others: the famous Hookhills Viaduct, one of the viaducts designed by Brunel which is on the Paignton and Dartmouth Railway; Hobbiton End, based on JR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings; C.E.G.B Tregellion (B) Generating Station, a Cornish power station and Calstock’s Halton Quay, based on a quay in South Wales.
There is free parking on-site at the school and a small admission charge.
