TINY trains attracted model railway enthusiasts to Keighley for the ninth annual 7mm Festival.

Keighley Model Railway Club showed off its own O-gauge layouts and hosted visiting layouts at its base at Keighley Business Centre.

Visitors were also able to browse specialist trade stalls and chat with members about the techniques used in building the detailed miniature displays.

Denholme Scouts served hot and cold food and homemade cakes.

The festival is now an established event on the O gauge calendar and the Keighley club's 7mm group has won high acclaim, plus many awards, for the standard of its layouts.

Displays included the ever-popular display Ravensbeck, where visitors can watch long freight trains and full-length passenger trains run through a scenic landscape, and even photograph their own locomotives on the tracks.

Another popular Keighley layout, Runswick Bay, which is set on the east coast of North Yorkshire, was on display for the last time before being sold to a private owner.

David Gliddon displayed his eye out for the first time in Keighley, entitled Boiler Road Shed, while Preston O Gauge Group took along a diorama showcasing various stages of construction of a railway layout.

Another layout highlighted the grit and glory years of the 1950s and 1960s at Hellifield Shed on the Settle-Carlisle main line.
