Hundreds of people enjoyed the late summer sunshine on Sunday when Wimborne Model Town re-launched its Mini Steam and Vintage Day.
Visitors enjoyed trailer rides given by mini steam traction engines with a miniature Showman engine and an organ adding to the atmosphere. Complimentary rides were also available around the Wimborne area on a classic yellow 1950 Leyland Titan bus. Retro Rita supplied the period vocal entertainment and the crowd were able to appreciate a line-up of vintage vehicles and motorbikes in the surrounding grounds while WMT’s own railway team launched their new model tramway.
Greg Hoar, the organiser, said: “It has been a great way to end such a busy summer period at the Model Town. We are very grateful for the support of many heritage transport enthusiasts and to our own volunteers in giving their time to make this such an enjoyable event for our visitors.”
