Corby modellers go full steam ahead for annual show featuring layouts as seen on TV
Corby and District Model Railway Society's as seen on TV layouts will provide the centre piece at their annual exhibition this weekend.
Even though the semi final signalled the end of the line for Team Steelmen, they were allowed to keep the competition layouts made during Channel 5's The Great Model Railway
Throughout the two-day exhibition, members of the team who took part in the contest will be available to chat about their TV experience.
Craig Tyler, Corby and District Model Railway Society chairman, said: "This year's exhibition has something for all with our interactive zone for kids of all ages to have a go.
"The zone includes a Lego layout, Underground Ernie, Tomy Thomas and 'Laithaichean sa Ghrein' - a solar-powered layout controlled from the front.
"Fourteen other layouts of varying size and gauge will fill the hall along with trade stands with the event being supported by Keith's Model Railways.
"The exhibition will also be the first time that the layouts constructed by Corby MRS on the Channel 5 The Great Model Railway Challenge will be making a public appearance with the
team on hand to ask any questions."
