LETTER OF THE DAY: Nightmare scenario for our city

Have your say

A WORKING model of a village and its railway station could be put on public display.

The Rowlands Castle Association, a residents’ group, is working to buy an iconic model railway set which the owner is looking to sell.

The model is set during the end of the Second World War.

Several donations have been received so far.

Chairman Kevin Connell said: ‘An informal work group has continued to investigate various options for the model’s acquisition, and also where to house it safely and securely for all to see.

‘It has been learned that the railway station is available for community use. The station would also provide an opportunity to house a larger collection.’
