MODEL railway enthusiasts made tracks to Leamington College at the weekend.

The Leamington & Warwick Model Railway Society Exhibition on Saturday and Sunday attracted rail enthusiasts young and old from across the country.

There were more than 20 working layouts representing most modelling scales and around 35 specialist traders to ensure visitors had all they needed to create their own layout back home.

The exhibition also featured a special event to commemorate the 50th anniversary year of the Model Electronic Railway Group, including a series of talks on the latest developments in electronic control of model railways.
