We had a viewing of Bethany King’s new short film, which she made about railway preservation as part of her college course. Part of the film was shot at a club meeting a few weeks ago & some club suspects appeared.
Bethany earned a well deserved distinction for her film from her college tutors.
Remember now that a forthcoming leading director cut her teeth at the Liphook & District Model Railway Club!
We hope to have the film running at this years Model Trains in the Valley on 23rd October.
