The 6th Annual Model Railway Exhibition organised by the town’s Rotary Club will take place on Saturday 21st March at the Youth Centre in Burn Lane.
This will be the biggest exhibition so far with 17 working layouts in scales from “n” to “G” created by some of the best modellers in the North of England.
Subjects include models from periods from the 1920’s up to the modern day and locations from as far away as Japan. Thomas and his friends will be on display along with a large working LegoRail layout.
There will be more trade stands than ever before selling new and used equipment, die-cast models, scenic items and a specialist Thomas the Tank Engine stand.
Preservation societies from across Northern England will be present including for the first time the group building the full size North Eastern Railway class G5 tank engine.
Doors open at 10am until 5pm, refreshments available all day, disabled access is available to all areas, free parking at St Mary’s Church opposite the venue.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to the “Heel and Toe” charity caring for children with Cerebral Palsy across County Durham and Darlington. Entry prices are: Adults £4, Concessions £3, Family £8, Children 50p
