The 1989 Festival Of Model Tramways
The Festival of Model Tramways, is the national and premier event for the model tram enthusiast.
The very first Festival was held on 6th/7th May 1989 at the Kew Bridge Steam Museum, Green Dragon Lane, Brentford, Greater London, TW8 0EN.
Here is a selection of publicity photographs taken by John Prentice at the time. Most are black and white because that was the publication requirement back then.
