Creative children rewarded with toy train

GREAT Western Railway has delivered its first electric train to Goring ? but at 77cm in length, it won?t be carrying any passengers.

GREAT Western Railway has delivered its first electric train to Goring ? but at 77cm in length, it won?t be carrying any passengers.

The company presented the £80 Lego toy to the village primary school, which runs a Lego club for pupils on Friday afternoons.

The club made a giant electric Lego railway which spanned two large desks in a classroom for the school?s summer fete.

The youngsters took a photograph of their creation and sent it to the company via Twitter, joking that they had beaten it to rolling out electric trains in the village.

In response, GWR donated the new train, which can be controlled remotely with a handset. It was delivered by Alison Stone, manager of Goring and Streatley station.

Parent Lesley Best, who runs the club, said: ?We?re really grateful for the gift. I?m sure the children are going to have many hours of fun with it.?
