Organisers said the event was so successful they have booked the Pannier Market for next year already.
BIDEFORD’S first model railway exhibition was a success last week raising nearly £2,000 for charity.
The show in the pannier market drew crowds from all over with working layouts from local modellers and those further afield.
The family exhibition raised £1950 for Barnstaple charity Amigos.
Organiser Maurice Pearce, of Osborns Models, said: “It was such an overwhelming success for a first attempt in Bideford that we will be duty bound to do it again next year.
