It is full steam ahead at the WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre for two indoor model weekends.

The centre will host a model train show on January 26 and 27 and a model boat show on February 9 and 10.

There will be something for all the family with entertainment provided by local model boat and train societies.

There will be over 60 model boats, tanks and an 8ft aircraft carrier at the model boat weekend and nine large train layouts at the model train weekend including a giant Lego train set and a Thomas the Tank Engine layout to allow children to drive the trains.

Centre Manager, Andy Wooldridge, said: “The model weekends we have done in the past have been so popular that we wanted to extend this year to make them bigger and better.

“It is great to do events like this to ensure we are continually offering new experiences at Martin Mere, especially if we can work with local clubs and societies.

“We have lots of new activities planned in 2013 and we are hoping for another very good year.”

Normal admission charges apply at the model boat and train show and there is no extra charge to take part in the event.
