He said: “All the exhibits attracted a good deal of interest and quite a few people claimed that, having seen what was on show and speaking to exhibitors, they were motivated to return home and make a start on models of their own!

“It was a most enjoyable weekend and it was a great pleasure to put our models on show to the public. We are a very grateful to all our modelling friends for their support and to our traders for their help.”

The Brierfield club raises money for St Luke’s Church and is very much connected with Pendle Forest Model Railway Society.

Mr Carter said: “As a lead-in to the Pendle Forest Model Railway Society’s 50th anniversary year, the event was a good start and we look forward to putting on more events during the year.”
