A model railway society is to present its latest layouts to the public at the weekend.

The Sheffield 0 Gauge Society will be showcasing five new layouts at Carterknowle Methodist Church, Edgedale Road, on Saturday, November 8, between 10am and 4.30pm.

The miniature layouts have taken years for the group to fully complete and the members’ handiwork will be on show to the public for the first time.

Paul Scott, from the group, said: “The layouts represent many hours of work for the society members and range from a narrow gauge railway based on a railway in rural France to a model of a place on the West Coast Mainline with big express locomotives tearing around.

“The new layouts have been under construction for several years and this is the first time some of them will have been shown to the public.”

Refreshments will be served to visitors on the day.

The model railway club is more than 30 years old and currently has around 20 members, many of whom are retired.

The group meets each week in a room above Carterknowle Church Hall where its members build layouts, run trains and talk about all things model railway.
