Get your conductor’s hat on in Welwyn Garden City this weekend, when an array of model railways will be on display.
The Howard Centre will play host to a display organised by the Stevenage & District Model Railway Club (S&DMRC) and De Havilland Model Railway Society.
Between 11am-4pm on Sunday, December 3, visitors can get a break from the stress of Christmas shopping to play with and learn about several model train layouts, featuring a “shunting” puzzle for both adults and children, a 1960s-style layout with steam engines, a raffle, sales tables and an information stand.
The event is free, but donations can be made to Isabel Hospice.
John Polley, chairman of the S&DMRC told the Welwyn Hatfield Times that last year’s event raised over £100 for the hospice.
He said: “It worked a treat last year.
“So immediately after last year’s event, we put a date into the diary for this year!”
The train enthusiasts and their lovingly-constructed displays can be found on the ground floor by the main entrance to the shopping centre, between the escalators.
