A MODEL railway show was a runaway success — with enthusiasts flocking from all over the UK to get on board with the fun.

The annual event, hosted by Scale O Rail Bolton at the Albert Halls, showcased some of the best modelling talent.

Also on show were nine working test tracks for punters to try out their models and carriages, plus stalls from dozens of traders selling painting equipment.
