A garden railway was set up in St Neots at the weekend to raise money for the 3 Pillars Feeding the Homeless charity.
The miniature railway event took place in Boardman Close, in Little Paxton, on Sunday and managed to raise £555 for the 3 Pillars.
The railway was built by the late David Keatley in his garden and garage and is now maintained by Ivan Page who is married to David's daughter, Sue.
David was an engineer and an electrician who started the railway in 1989 on his retirement. When David died in 2011, Ivan took up the project.
Ivan is assisted by his son David Page (grandson of David Keatley) who he was named after.
Visitors were able to see Thomas the Tank Engine. Both Sue and Ivan regularly volunteer with the 3 Pillars.
