The London Model Engineering Exhibition which opens today, features more than a thousand models from over 50 national and regional clubs and societies. A wide range of locomotives, boats and aircraft are on show, including a ‘OO’ scale model of the Abbey Road station, built for the 150th Anniversary of the London Underground. The show runs through Sunday, Jan. 20.

Editor's Note: Abbey Road station is not the same place as Abbey Road crossing where the Beatles had their recording studio and the well-known album cover was photographed.
