railway enthusiasts flock to Highbridge train show
model railway show made a return to Highbridge at the weekend when
scores of train-themed attractions went on display.
Rail 2016, an annual pre-Christmas Show King Alfred School in Highbridge,
is overseen by Burnham & District Model Railway Club.
two-day show on Saturday and Sunday attracted a steady flow of visitors
who enjoyed seeing scores of displays and layouts.
& District Model Railway Club had its latest limited-edition
wagons on show among the attractions.
club spokesman John Langley, pictured top, told Burnham-on-Sea.com:
"We have been making our specially-made limited-edition wagons
for charity for several years and have raised £58,182 so far
for charities including BARB and the RNLI among many others. We
hope to reach £60,000 soon."
weekend show - featuring layouts of various gauges plus trade stands,
displays and demonstrations - will return in 2017 but organisers
say they intend to avoid the clash with Remembrance Day in order
to encourage more visitors.
