Battle reenactments and railway displays were showcased at a weekend-long exhibition.
Burnham and District Model Railway Club held its Sedgemoor Rail event at King Alfred’s School, in Highbridge, during the bank holiday weekend.
More than 500 visitors enjoyed the 15 exhibits on display across the two days.
Exhibit manager Norman Clymer was pleased with how it went.
He said: “It was a great event overall and we were very pleased with the numbers.
“We had different layouts in T gauge to 0 gauge, as well as trade stands, demonstrations and refreshments.”
Callum Wilcox won the best in show award for his World War One replica of the Amiems battlefield of 1918 with DC analogue control.
The club will host its Christmas show at the school from December 8-9.
