TINY railways which have been meticulously made by hand will be on display at the annual Greenock Model Railway Show.

People of all ages are on track for a great day out at the two-day show at the Lyle Kirk later this month.

John Miller, who has been a member of the club for the past 38 years, says he loves creating displays for people to enjoy looking at.

He said: “I think it’s about having the ability to create your own wee world harking back to an era when the trains were more interesting and more picturesque.

“To create a specific lay out a lot of different skills are involved.

“The good thing is that members help each other develop their skills.”

With 11 working model railway layouts, several trade stands and preservation groups also being represented, this is a chance for people to rekindle their childhood memories or create new ones.

People are invited to marvel at the detail in these finely crafted models, gaze at the Meccano exhibits or share the latest model electronic techniques.

There will also be exhibitors from Ayrshire, Stirlingshire and Tyneside together with trade stands and a buffet serving hot and cold snacks.

The show is on Saturday October 21 from 10am to 5pm and on Sunday October 22 from noon to 5pm.

Tickets cost £4.50 per adult, £3.50 for concessions and a family ticket for two adults and two children is £13.

Every child who brings along a colour drawing of a train will get free entry to the show when accompanied by an adult, plus entry to a free prize draw for the best picture.
