This year there was a good turnout for the Ingleborough District Rail Fair, with visitors and exhibitors travelling from throughout the North West. All the layouts, including a ‘Z’ gauge layout worked by enthusiasts from Askham in Cumbria, as well as a display from DCC Concepts from Settle, attracted interest.

Settle Scout Group played a significant role in supporting the event, supplying a wide range of delicious cakes, and by adult members manning the door and assisting with the tombola and refreshments. Max Clarke, a Settle Scout, exhibited his ‘N’ gauge layout and several other Scouts also enthusiastically demonstrated their Lego layout. After expenses, the excellent sum of £520 was raised, with 1st Settle Scout Group receiving a further£110 from refreshments, £50 from their bookstall and £11 from their Lego layout. Well done, everyone!

The Ingleborough team is very grateful for the hard work of Dave Burrows, who has been organising Model Rail Exhibitions for District for the last nineteen years. He is now looking for a successor to organise the event but is happy to help and advise anyone interested in taking on the role for 2020. If you fancy giving it a go, please ring Dave on 07580 120951 for a chat and to find out what is involved.
