SUPERMAN and Captain America entertained sci-fi fans over the weekend at an event at the East Lancashire Railway.

Children and families were treated to seeing their favourite characters at Sci-Fi on the Sidings on Saturday and Sunday. 

Sci-fi lovers headed to Rawtenstall Station, which was part of the route, where displays of comic book heroes and classic characters from Star Wars could be seen.

Doctor Who was shown at Bury Bolton Street Station, while Bury Transport Museum was transformed into every Star Wars fan’s dream.

Families flocked to Ramsbottom to sit in a Jurassic World Gyrosphere and people could take in the might of the giant Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, from Ghostbusters, and ogle the Ecto 1 car, from the classic 1980s favourite.
