VISITORS were chuffed by working model railroad layouts and displays of Meccano at Ilkley's Winter Garden in 2008.

The Lionel Collectors Club UK once again held its annual show in the spa town, having previously held the popular event there.

The club invited members of the public in to see its operating layouts featuring trains produced by the American toy and models company.

Most Lionel trains are coarse scale 'O' gauge models - unlike the average British-produced models - and feature a third rail. Many depict North American locomotives.

Visitors of all ages were also able to get a closer look at Meccano models and shop at trade stands.
