The Norfolk and Suffolk Narrow Gauge Modellers held the event at Barsham and Shipmeadow Village Hall on September 9, with attendance slightly up on last year and many families enjoying the event.

The exhibition included around seven different layouts for visitors to admire, with some of the displays provided by members of the group.

Club member Richard Doe said: 'We had some good feedback on the day from those who had visited, with favourable comments on the variety of exhibits on show and the tasty homemade refreshments on offer.

'The group would like to thank all those that supported the event and we are pleased to be able to donate £200 to the new indoor toilet appeal for Barsham and Shipmeadow Village Hall.'
