Old-style fun was on track over the weekend, when Tring and District Model Railway Club held their annual Beacon-Rail exhibition at Pitstone Memorial Hall.

The group hosted more than 300 visitors of all ages, who enjoyed watching a variety of trains from tiny Z-scale 
models up to large G-scale 
railways.
