The popular event has proved to be a high point in the calendar for railway enthusiasts and is expected to draw in the crowds at Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre, from 10.30am-5pm.

“We always have a great and varied selection of model railways layouts in different scales and gauges and lots of different sorts of railways,” said David Vince, from the club.

“For anybody that’s interested in railways of all ages it’s the place to come. There are lots of model railway traders there as well. If you wanted to get started yourself this is a good way to do it.”

The leisure centre is in Stowmarket’s Gainsborough Road, postcode IP14 1LH.
