Market Deeping model railway rebuilt with Rod Stewart's help

A 30,000 model railway display destroyed by vandals has been rebuilt thanks to generous donations from well-wishers, including Sir Rod Stewart.

The Market Deeping Model Railway Club's display was ruined by four teenagers at Welland Academy in Stamford, Lincolnshire, in May.

Donations - including 10,000 from model rail enthusiast Sir Rod - allowed the sets to be repaired.

They are now on display at the Warley Show at the Birmingham NEC.

Well done to the modellers who have risen to the challenge in adverse circumstances.
