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”.
