Scout Model Rail Fair

At the recent Scout Model Rail Fair at the Primary School in Settle visitors were treated to trade stands for model railways, model road vehicles, two heritage railway companies and four operating layouts. Settle Scouts also had great fun demonstrating a Lego layout and steam engine.


As this was the last Scout Rail Fair organised by Dave Burrows, former ADC (Scouts), he and his wife, Mary Anne, former DCSL, were both thanked and presented with gifts by Dick Chalmers, the District Chairman. Dave’s passion and enthusiasm for modelling has been much in evidence since he started organising the event in 2003. Over the years, Dave and Mary Anne’s efforts have raised in excess of £6,000, including this year’s profit of £248, which is hugely appreciated by everyone in Ingleborough District.
