At my local club we hare having a drive to get some new members. If any of you live in the london area then you are more than welcome to pop along on a thursday night. we can accomodate most gauges from N to O and we have a library which in my opinion is second only to the NRM's (which is closed at the moment anyway!!)
We are looking for members with enthusiasm and the time to make projects really happen. I am also trying my best to float the idea of a new perminant layout for the club room. there is plenty of space and the club has the money to make it happen but we need some new members to help make it happen. There are several layouts under construction already for exhibition use but the club has never had a layout in the club room for the use of evryone.
Here is a list of the upcomming events.
