HUNDREDS of people turned out to visit Saffron Walden Model Railway Club's annual exhibition at the URC and Salvation Army Halls on Saturday.

The sunshine brought out a large crowd, well up on last year.

Eight model railways in various gauges were on show including layouts from the Chelmsford and Sudbury clubs.

Club chairman, Julian Nettle, said: "A big thank you to the club members, visiting layouts, our trade stands and the ladies of the URC and Salvation Army for their help.
