Model railway lovers flocked to King Alfred School in Highbridge on Saturday (3rd November) when the 2018 Vintage Hornby Train Show was held.

Train lovers old and young enjoyed the 10th annual show, which was organised by the Bristol and Somerset Branch of the Hornby Railway Collectors’ Association Limited.

The net proceeds from the day were divided between the branch and the Friends of Burnham-On-Sea War Memorial Hospital.

Mayor Bill Hancock, who opened the show with Town Crier Alastair Murray, said it was “wonderful” to see the event so well supported.

“There were operating layouts in 0 and 00 gauges featuring original Hornby trains and other makes, including a large Hornby-Dublo layout “I ‘Ad That”, together with trade stands selling new and used items,” added a spokesman.
