All railway tracks lead to Holmfirth.

IT was full steam ahead in Holmfirth at the weekend with the hosting of the Huddersfield Railway Modellers exhibition.

The 47th annual event held at the Civic Hall saw club members including Roger Womersley, Harry Moore and Eric Mellor set up their locomotives and track layouts to offer a glimpse of the miniature world of railways to visitors.

They were joined by other modellers from across the country who brought a further seven track layouts.

The exhibition included models of Hebden Bridge station in the 1960s and the now defunct Longroyd Bridge station in the 1950s.

A Thomas the Tank Engine layout proved popular with the youngest fans.

Model railway building was hugely popular in the 1950s, 60s and 70s and today, there are many groups around the country offering help and advice.
