A toy steam train fair saw visitors from as far away as the Virgin Islands descend on an Eastwood pub.

Seen here are organisers of the J26 steam fair, held at The Wellington Inn, handing a a cheque for £2,500 to Rainbows Hospice – raised by members of the Mamod forum and auctions and other events at the fair.

The annual fair, organised by Peter Thornhill, attracts enthusiasts from far and wide every year, and this year was no exception.
