I had always had an interest in trains since a young age but was never big on the whole trainspotting thing. I never fancied standing about at railway stations all day trying to catch a glimpse of a certain train. For me the fun was in the model trains.

You can get some truly beautiful examples of these models and I also love the creativity it takes to get a whole scene set up. Building up a town and the countryside, setting the tracks, all of this takes a lot of time and dedication but the end results are fascinating.

The boys are really starting to take an interest in it now and they love helping to build up a town. It is a really creative way of teaching them certain things and because they enjoy it we have a lot of fun together too.
