Model railway lovers will be flocking to King Alfred School in Highbridge today (Saturday, 2nd November) when the 2019 Vintage Hornby Train Show is held.
Train lovers old and young will enjoy the 11th annual show, which is being organised by the Bristol and Somerset Branch of the Hornby Railway Collectors’ Association Limited.
The show is open to all and will be held in the school’s B Block from 10am until 4pm. Admission prices are £3 for adults and seniors, and free for accompanied children.
“There will be operating layouts in 0 and 00 gauges featuring original Hornby trains “Made in England by Meccano Limited” and other makes, including a large Hornby-Dublo layout “I ‘Ad That”, together with trade stands selling new and used items, and running facilities in both gauges,” said a spokesman.
Refreshments will be available all day. There is plenty of free car parking on site, with disabled spaces close to B Block and level access for wheelchairs.
Proceeds will go to the Friends of Burnham-On-Sea War Memorial Hospital.
