"Steam in Miniature is a family, fun weekend," said Hollycombe Trustee Brian Gooding. "Visitors love to get up close to the miniature steamies, and their owners are very good at explaining how the engines operate to children. There are also wonderful photographic opportunities with afternoon line-ups of the miniatures alongside the railway track."
For Club Secretary Tony Dezell this is one of the event highlights of the year: "Members of our club will be coming to Hollycombe from as far afield as Devon, Kent and Northamptonshire. We have been visiting for upwards of 30 years and always receive a very warm welcome. It’s great to meet up with old friends and showcase our engines to an interested audience."
