Ananova – Trainspotter’s model garden

A steam train fan has built a working miniature railway in his front garden. Eric Marshall, 68, spent three years crafting the network which features four trains plus stations, signals, bridges, houses, waterfalls and even a working a cable car.

The railway attracts daily coaches of visitors and has raised £500 for Macmillan Cancer Support this year.
