    Some of the models going on display include a replica of a Devon railway from the 1920s. International efforts included scale replicas of China, Sweden and America.

    Mid-century northern England and many Scottish entries will also feature. Miniatures included the Guinness World Record's smallest model railway items.

    Publicity manager Colin Rae, 46, said: "The whole hobby attracts a whole raft of people. It's an interesting demographic.

    "A lot of people are interested as a child, we get a lot of people who take early retirement who take it up. "It's a very relaxing hobby. I find painting models very therapeutic."
