Full steam ahead for Aylsham’s model railway exhibition
Train enthusiasts from around the country have been indulging their passions.
Broadland Model Railway Club hosted the annual Aylsham Model Railway Exhibition on Saturday with a host of train memorabilia, models and books on show to view and to buy.
The exhibition, sponsored by the Bure Valley Railway, was held in the Jubilee Centre in Aylsham, with steam and diesel model trains ranging from N gauge to 0 gauge.
Tim Drew, exhibition manager, said: 'People have come from all over including Chelmsford and Ipswich and the furthest distance is Maidenhead which was my old club. We go for quality rather than quantity but we are lucky having such a good size venue here.'
This year is the eighth exhibition run in Aylsham by the club.

Terry Durrant, 81, from Poringland Norwich, was at the exhibition under the title of Grandad's Trains, showcasing his O gauge three rail layout and some of his models which date back to 1921.
He said: 'I have been collecting since my parents brought my first old age train just after the war in 1947-1948. I have been a fan of the railways ever since.'
