The Market Deeping Model Railway Club, which was brutally destroyed by youth vandals in May, is to go on show for the first time at Warley.
The Market Deeping Model Railway Club display was damaged at Welland Academy in Stamford, Lincolnshire, in May. More than £107,000, including a £10,000 donation from model rail enthusiast Sir Rod Stewart, was raised through a crowdfunding appeal to repair the exhibitions.
The display is now due to go on show at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham later this week.
Earlier this year four 16-year-old boys admitted damaging the display after drinking a bottle of vodka on a “pre-exam night rampage”.
The males were charged following the incident at Stamford Welland Academy on Saturday, May 18.
Police had been called at 3.50am after being alerted by a local resident. A significant amount of damage was caused to model railway exhibits, as a show was due to be held at the school later that day.
