However, the additional attraction of the many different types of models, all exquisitely built, included ships in just about every form imaginable. There were remote tanks which staged a reproduction of a well known battle shortly after the D-Day landings, and a huge variety of steam engine applications. This was certainly not just a day for steam enthusiasts, because there was something to suit all tastes. Conclusively the opinion was definitely a day to be remembered and a timely reminder of just how important steam was to the Industrial Revolution.
After a gentle day strolling around the attractions, some of us stopped off for an early dinner giving us another opportunity to reminisce before arriving home.
