Over the same years private steam mileage has grown to become a national attraction. Steam rail modelling is now a major leisure pursuit throughout Britain. Steam rail models up to 195? command very high value. Collectors pay thousands of pounds for a single locomotive subject to type and make. JJ Films. The End (14.16)
