Model railway exhibition attracts visitors of all ages to WiltonMugs with a difference for Stratford sub Castle coronation bell-ringers

The Salisbury and South Wilts Railway Society (SSWRS) held its annual Model Railway Exhibition on 20-21 May at the Michael Herbert Hall, Wilton.

Over 750 visitors of all ages, including many families, attended.

The exhibition offered a number of layouts in different gauges and was supported by local model traders from the south west and some excellent cuisine. Wilton’s mayor, Cllr Andrew Kinsey, visited on Saturday and took a keen interest in the layouts exhibited.

He was shown round by the society’s chairman, Kevin Babey and is shown in the photograph admiring the skills achieved by the Newton Heath Works model in O gauge, representing the once extensive clay railways in Purbeck, Dorset.

Salisbury and South Wilts Railway Society welcomes new members.
