There’s a chance to let your nostalgia run wild this afternoon at the Cambridge Museum of Technology, where Meccano and model railways are on display.
Kids and adults are also invited to join in with the museum’s “Elastic Locomotive modelling activity,” building their own models with the help of the museum’s paper engineers.
