      Market Deeping Model Railway Club lost years of work in the raid at Welland Academy in Stamford on Saturday.

      Its chairman Peter Davies, 70, said exhibits were smashed, thrown around and stamped on, including a locomotive unit worth about £8,500.

      Four youths have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and criminal damage.

      The club had set up an exhibition in the school for viewing on Sunday.

      I appreciate that people want to help and that the public is so supportive of the club. It's really encouraging these days. I'd like to see the little *******s and, if they're minors, their parents, be held responsible, too.

      In Britian, you don't **** with another man's model railway. You should probably leave the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds alone, too.

      I took my kid to a model train show once, the one thing I remember was each and every model railway club member was in desperate need of a Root Canal, the rotting teeth odor was overwhelming.

      Tie three of the kids to a real train track old-timey movie style. Then give the fourth a narrow window to untie them before the train comes.

      That's incredibly sad and infuriating. Anyone who models/builds scale models knows the hundreds of hours and dedication devoted to various projects. I spent 3 years and 700+ man hours on my carrier build alone. I can't fathom someone coming along and smashing it to pieces maliciously.

      I'm not a modeler, but this totally sucks. I can't imagine how much hate you have to have to go destroy stuff that doesn't have any impact on you at all. Those kids need something, a good ass-kicking followed by some psychological assistance for sure.
