There were action figures, Lego, themed figures from the Simpsons to Star Wars and of course model railways.

After it was recently revealed that Rod Stuart is a keen model railway enthusiast, many went to the fair see what all the fuss is about.

The event is organised four times a year by Ronnie Davies and Tim Pearson of Retro Ronnie Fairs, who also manage similar collectors’ fairs in Swindon and Cirencester, and where better place to stage a toy and train fair than down the road from the famous Didcot Railway Centre?

The Didcot and Oxfordshire Toy and Train fair has been running since 2015 and takes place every three to four months in Didcot Civic Town Hall and it is still as popular as ever.

Mr Davies has always been a collector and is now in his seventh year of running the Didcot event, and hosted a successful fair on Saturday.

Mr Davies believes people enjoy the fair so much because it is nostalgic.

He said: "They remember their youth - whether they had the toys as a child or not, they still want to buy the toys.”

Mr Davies and his business partner Mr Pearson had a wide variety of toys from across the board, from James Bond and Star Wars toys to soldiers and they are proud of how far they have come.

Mr Davies said: “It’s a sense of achievement, we have dealers coming from South Wales all the way to Manchester, it’s hard work but we get nice people come.”

The fair was the perfect opportunity to buy collectible items and perfect for Christmas presents.

With the hall full of cartoon figurines and model train sets, it was enough to tempt even Sir Rod.

People from across the country came to see the collectible items and to sell them.

There were children and adults playing and reminiscing on their childhood with the huge sets of toys and train sets, everyone was trying to get their hands on rare collectible toys and train sets.

Rare collectibles from across the decades were stacked high in the hall with toys ranging from the present all the way back to the Victorian era.

The next Didcot Toy and Train Fair will be taking place on February 1, but one will also be held in Cirencester on December 8.

Train fans can also head to the nearby Great Western Railway centre or the famous Pendon model railway museum in Long Wittenham.
