Lot's of people would be embarrassed about liking model railways, but not me. I've even got a choo-choo train bedspread and a pair of Thomas the Tank Engine pyjamas -- but please don't tell anyone that I said that for chrissakes because I'll never live it down.
If you're like me then get yourself down to the Ally Pally for the London Festival of Railway Modelling -- London's leading railway modelling event suitable for modelling enthusiasts of all ages.
The show will include over forty working layouts and over 100 exhibitors, selling everything from paint to trains and railway tracks. The show will also bring together a selection of clubs, associations, societies and enthusiasts who will be on hand to offer advice, tips and demonstrations aimed at improving your modelling skills.
