AN OPEN day for model railway enthusiasts provided a day of nostalgia and fun for all ages.

Keighley Model Railway Club opened the doors of their 9,000sq ft home at Keighley Business Centre for the annual event, which it has held for more than 30 years.

A Hornby three rail layout proved one of the most popular tracks, especially for adults who had received the same one as a present when they were children.

Visitors were able to bring their tracks and engines along to try out on the club’s equipment, with some families travelling from across the country to visit the group.

Steve Ward, vice chairman of Keighley Model Railway Club, said: “We hold this every Christmas and people bring what they have got as presents to run their new stuff.

“People have come from the district, but people have also come from Derby to see us and ride the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.”

The club was established in 1974 and now has 80 members of all ages, which meet in its clubrooms - one of the largest in the north.
