The Falmouth Society of Railway Modellers were “quite delighted” with the attendance at a recent free open day at the Atheneum Club in Falmouth.

The event, which featured working layouts, sales of kit and demonstrations, was organised in an attempt to popularise the hobby, and the group hopes one or two prospective members may have had their interest piqued.

One member, David Curtis, said: “It went well, we were quite delighted.

“There was quite a nice turnout with quite a bit of interest and hopefully we might have picked up a member or two, we will wait and see.”
