Model railway show steams ahead

Have your say

MODEL railway enthusiasts will converge on a Yorkshire city this weekend for an exhibition which has been staged over more than half a century.

The Wakefield Railway Modellers’ Society launched its 52nd exhibition yesterday and the event is continuing throughout the weekend at Thornes Park Stadium, off Horbury Road.

It takes place today between 10am and 6pm and tomorrow from 10am until 5pm.

The displays will include 20 layouts and 30 traders.

The Wakefield Railway Modellers’ Society was founded in March 1958, and is now based in a two-storey building near the city centre.
