Air Cadets from 209 (West Bridgford) and 1279 (Melton Mowbrey) helped out at the annual Open Days of the Stapleford Miniature Railway over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

The annual event showcases the scaled down replica steam engines which run on a 2 mile track around the park.

The Cadets main job was to park the 1600 cars that turn up over the weekend. They also helped run an ATC publicity stand which featured a survival dinghy, camping equipment and a Viking glider cockpit.

When not helping out the Cadets were free to explore the displays, steam engines and historic cars that make up the event.
