Our Railathon had people guessing!

On Saturday 30th August 2013 we held a Railathon: visitors had a glimpse of our layout being made ready for the Exhibition and were asked to estimate the number of times a Javelin trainset went round the layout non-stop in 12 hours.

The first two digits on the counter were masked off during the Railathon. Here the final number is revealed: 1591.

A competition for the children was ‘How many animals are on the layout?’ Alistair was delighted he’d found the tricky ones – with some helpful hints from Don!
