Wimborne Minster Railway Engines – Unveiled

The Mayor, Cllr Kelly Webb, was on hand to unveil and watch the inaugural run of two special model locomotives on the volunteer run railway diorama at Wimborne Model Town.  A West Country class steamer in late 1940s livery, complete with Wimborne nameplates and the Town Council’s crest, was revealed together with a late 1950s era Class 31 diesel bearing the Mayor’s name, celebrating her year in office.

Greg Hoar, spokesman for the Model Town commented: “We were delighted to welcome the Mayor to introduce these new engines as they provide not only a link with the Town Council but a reminder of our area’s railway heritage”.
