Hundreds of train enthusiasts young and old enjoyed the annual Dereham Model Railway Exhibition today.
The event, which is in its 15th year, took place at Neatherd High School.
There were 15 model railways on show, depicting traditional, industrial and even fantasy scenes.
Children enjoyed a lego train track as well as a digitally-controlled model railway.
Between 600 and 700 people attended the event, organised by the Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust and the Flying Pigs Large Scale Railway Modellers, based in East Anglia.
An 11-year-old boy, from Dereham, said: “It is awesome.”
All proceeds from the event will go towards the Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust.
