MECCANO sets may no longer be top of the Christmas gifts list for youngsters these days but they do still have a fatal fascination for many.

Devotees will have the chance next month to see a fascinating display of Meccano models at Enginuity in Coalbrookdale, near Ironbridge.

Models created from Frank Hornby's original construction toy by members of the Telford and Ironbridge Meccano Society will be on show on Saturday February 9. They will include an amazing collection of cranes, cars, clocks, trains and numerous quirky inventions.

Some of the models contain vintage parts well over 100 years old, which are still compatible with the more modern Meccano pieces.

Open 10am to 5pm Enginuity is one of the Ironbridge Gorge Museums and entry into the Meccano exhibition is included within the normal Enginuity admission fee.
