Browsers flock to toy and train sale at Pavilion

* People browse for bargains on the stalls.

* Examples of every form of transport was on sale at reasonable prices.

* One stall offered a range of Dr Who goodies.

Over 300 file in before lunch

A host of transport, including trains, boats, planes and cars, lined up inside Llan's Royal International Pavilion today (Saturday).
But finding space for them all was no problems as they were all scale models of the real thing.
Traders and browsers from across a wide area turned up to enjoy the annual North Wales and Llangollen Toy and Train Sale.

Visitors were able to cast their eyes over tables offering items from some of the top names in the toy world, including Dinky, Corgi, Matchbox, Britains, Efe, Lledo, Hornby Trains, Bachmann, Lima and many more.

Items on sale ranged from just a few pounds to rare crafted pieces costing over £600.
Organiser Chris Dyer, from Somerset, said the event was well attended and that around 300 people had bought tickets before lunch.

Chris added: “We all look forward to our annual effort at Llangollen, with its wonderful setting and great value, and our bookings from traders have been very heavy.
“The excellent parking facilities and the great in-house cafĂ© all help the show, and this year for the first time in many years we did not clash with Thomas weekend on the Llangollen Railway, which suits the age profile of most of our customers.
“The sale has been another success and we are already trying to arrange a date for next year's event."
