The great days of railway travel will be marked this weekend, when the Gainsborough Model Railway commemorates 75 years since the streamlined trains of the 1930s last ran.

“While the nation has recently been marking the centenary of the First World War, in less than a fortnight it will be 75 years since the start of the Second World War,” said society chairman Chris Wragg.

“The 1930s saw rail travel reach new heights of both speed and luxury.”
