The National Garden Railway Show will be chugging into Peterborough next weekend and you could be on board thanks to The Hunts Post.

We’ve teamed up with the organisers to offer readers the chance of winning entry tickets and a whole host of other prizes.

The show, billed as probably the largest of its kind in the world, will include steam trains in action all day, with layouts of various scales.

There will be more than 70 trade stands, a heritage display and auction, a model of the year competition and plenty of help and advice on offer for anyone interested in learning more about taking model trains outdoors.

Special guest at Peterborough Arena will be Quarry Hunslet “Alice”, a 1902 narrow gauge locomotive built for the slate quarries in North Wales. A Bentley belonging to railway photographer Ivo Peters is also due to make an appearance.

The Hunts Post, in partnership with the Association of 16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers, has 10 prize packs to giveaway, each featuring a pair of tickets to the show, a pair of return bus passes for the dedicated event buses from Peterborough Railway Station, and a year’s joint membership of the Association.

To win, simply answer the following question: What is the name of the line that Huntingdon and St Neots railway stations are on?
