Collectors from across the South West headed to the 10th Vintage Hornby Train Show at The King Alfred School on Saturday.

Vintage model railway layouts were on display so excited visitors could see them in action.

Many layouts are made in situ using loose track sections to create one-off displays.

The exhibition was organised by the Bristol and Somerset Group of the Hornby Railway Collectors’ Association.
