Three model train sets including a display featuring the Glenfinnan Viaduct and working fairground rides were among the attractions at the second Lochaber Model Show.
About 1,000 people attended the weekend event at Fort William, which made it debut last year and will now become a regular highlight on the town’s calendar.
Last year’s show raised £1,080 for Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team (MRT) and it is hoped that a similar amount was collected at the scaled-up event, which took over all three halls at the Duncansburgh MacIntosh Church.
Organiser Robert Wilson, 57, of Roy Bridge, said: “There were 32 exhibitors, each with an average of 30 models so there were around 1,000 models on display.
“The show went really well.
“The public response was good again and we are very grateful for the sponsorship from local businesses.”
Mr Wilson added that 400-500 of those attending Saturday’s exhibition were children.
He said: “Martin Gentle’s working fairground rides, including a carousel and chair-o-planes, were quite an attraction for the kids.
“We also had a running train set in every hall and the children were fascinated by all the trains.”
The small-scale railway display featuring the Glenfinnan Viaduct was exhibited by John Barnes, of Glenfinnan Station Museum.
Mr Wilson said he was hoping that, once all the overheads had been paid, the event would have raised about £1,000 for Lochaber MRT.
He said: “I chose the mountain rescue team to receive the proceeds because it’s a prominent local charity.
“Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the country and they are associated with that.
“It’s also an important local charity that people like to support.”
He added that he was now planning to make the model show an annual event.
