National Festival of Railway Modelling was held at the East of England Showground in Peterborough on 18 and 19 October 2008. On display were around 30 layouts and this video features the Whiteleaf Light Railway. Hampton End, Hassell Harbour Bridge and Halston Junction layouts.
This video is of the layout at the National Railway Museum at York. Unfortunately it was not actually operating on either occasion we went to see it but you can get a good idea as to what it looks like.
