Run jointly between Diss and District Model Railway Society and Rickinghall Village Hall, there will this year be 16 quality layouts at this year's Rickinghall Model Railway Show.

A large marquee will again be attached to the village hall for the annual event on Saturday, May 6 to ensure plenty of room for visitors to move around and properly see the exhibits.

A spokesman for the event said: 'We expect to welcome a wide range of people, not only model railway enthusiasts but also others who come to see the show as an entertainment for all the family.

'There will be lots for everyone to look at, with plenty of action on the layouts, some serious railway modelling for enthusiasts, and even a 'Thomas 2' layout which can be operated by our younger visitors.
