The Romford Model Railway Society, based at the Fairkytes Arts Centre, in Hornchurch, welcomed all of their guests to Marshalls Park School, Pettits Lane, Romford, at the weekend to present all of the different miniature train exhibits.

The event enjoyed a record breaking turnout of around 600 model railway lovers on Saturday, the most the society has ever received in its 43-year history of holding the exhibition at the school.

Romford Model Railway Society member Tony Hyde said: “The Romford Model Railway Exhibition was a great success.

“There was a lot 
of positive feedback from visitors, exhibitors and 
traders alike.”

The Romford Railway Society would like welcome new members to the group so if you are interested, call chairman Alan Kay on 07946 615381.
