NEARLY 700 people visited the Forest of Dean Model Railway Society’s annual show over the weekend – a new record.
The show, which was held at the Dean Academy on Saturday and Sunday was also the largest ever with over 20 layouts ranging in scale from the tiny 2mm N gauge layouts through to an impressive 1:12 scale dolls house scale seaside layout.
The layouts on display came from as far afield as Barry, Taunton and one from York!
The best in show prize went to a Gloucestershire layout from a modeller from Stonehouse – called Oxford Road which featured a modern ground level railway and underneath it a section of underground railway.
The funds raised from the show will used to develop new layouts and cover the cost of premises.
The club meets in the community rooms of the United Reform church in Drybrook on Monday and Friday evenings 7pm to 10pm and full details can be found on the club web site which is www.fodmrc.org.uk.
Next years show will be over the weekend of the September 26 and 27.
