A TEENAGER from Salisbury has won a competition by making a film about Salisbury Railway Station.

Wilson Hill, 16, a pupil at Bishop Wordsworth’s School, entered the contest run by the Youth Rail Enthusiasts Association (YREA) to produce a video under the title Welcome to My Station.

YREA manager Chris Jeffery said: “I am always amazed what our members come up with every year. No matter what title we throw at them, our youngsters always produce some fantastic videos with such thought and passion behind them.”

Wilson’s film told a real story of Salisbury station and why it was so close to his heart, as well as providing detailed information about the area, the services the station has, and the tea.

“It was well filmed and put together, and was a real joy to watch,” added Mr Jeffery.

Prizes in the competition included free train tickets to various parts of the country, model railway products, books, museum tickets and railway merchandise.
