The best layout at the event, which was held at City of Ely Community College, was won by David Barham and Fen End Pit.

In a post from the group on social media, it said: “We had a brilliant 40th Model Railway exhibition in Ely today.

“The winner of the best layout competition, voted for by the public, was Fen End Pit. A very deserving winner - for a number of reasons. David was so, so happy. A great result.

“And to cap it all, we got a very low level flypast by the Lancaster Bomber over Ely College at 5.05pm as we were packing up the show.
