Whanganui New Zealand model train expo draws hundreds

The New Zealand model railroad exhibition runs biannually
Whanganui's train model exhibition proved to be a hoot with more than 1000 tickets sold over the weekend.

For more than six years the event has been the Whanganui Model Railway and Engineering Society's major fundraiser and has run biannually.

From 10am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday crowds gathered at Whanganui City College school hall to exhibit displays from model railway clubs all over the north island.

Whanganui Model Railway and Engineering Society president, Paul Mallett, said clubs had come from Hamilton, Napier, Tauranga, Palmerston North, Levin and New Plymouth.
