Not even the sleet and snow which fell during the weekend was enough to dampen spirits among model railway fans - with more than 2,250 visiting the annual Milton Keynes Model Railway Society exhibition at Stantonbury Leisure Centre.

Organisers were especially pleased to welcome a large number of families with children to Saturday’s show, as well as railway modellers from across the UK.

Visitors came from as far away as Scotland and Brighton!

A vintage Routemaster bus from London, running between Milton Keynes Central rail station and the exhibition proved to be especially popular too, ferrying attendees to and from the event.

“We were delighted to see so much interest from families and children this year, especially as we worked hard to present some top quality exhibits,” said MKMRS exhibition manager Terry Silver.

“Given the appalling weather, we are delighted that so many people chose to join us. We would love to hear visitors’ feedback on the show as it really helps us to plan for next year.”

Next year’s show is confirmed for Saturday, February 10, 2018.
