The annual event also enjoyed stalls organised by other hobby groups, including model boats and aeroplanes.

Dundee Model Railway Club chairman Victor Burne-Jones said: “All sorts of clubs from a number of areas have joined us. We have had hundreds of people coming to see the displays.

“We always enjoy it as a good get-together a place to meet old friends and also make new ones. It also gives us an opportunity to showcase model railways as a hobby to younger people, who might often be more into computers.”

Railway lines from across Scotland were on display, as well as stations from places such as America.

Mr Burne-Jones said that his favourite display was the Deerfoot Inlet, a display by Scott Cunningham who was inspired by a trip to the Rocky Mountains in Canada.
