Hi from Portsmouth
Please add to the club directory the Victory Model Railway Club. We meet every Tuesday at St James church hall in Milton, Southsea from 7pm till late and anyone who wants to come along is more than welcome. We've just done the Basingstoke show with our layout 'Milton Junction' and our next outing is the Festival of Steam in Portsmouth Dockyard.

OK, no problem. Quite a nice collection of clubs. Publicly searchable of course so if people are looking for a club, yours may just come up. If anyone else wishes to add theirs, please send along the details.

Hi,

Can you add the Leamington & Warwick MRS

www.lwmrs.co.uk

Can you use postcode of CV31 3NS‎ to fix us on the map ( not our real postcode as we are out in the country but we dont advertise that address to the public for security reasons)

I have added our Jan show at Stoneleigh to your calendar.

Thanks.

Unfortunately publishing the details of the address of our clubhouse is not permitted since it is located in a rural area and would be very vulnerable to thieves but I am a member of the Market deeping model railway club which covers the towns of Stamford,Bourne and Market Deeping as well as being easy reach of Peterborough with quite a few members resident there

this is a good point, we should be able to, in this day and age, to safely give the address of the clubs, but we cant because thieves still target railway collections, it's mad. and so much for the police, most of the time they do something after the crime has happened, and this happens in all types of crime, not just burgulary!

That's fascinating bangerblueed! Do new members get escorted there blindfolded and searched for tracking devices on their first trip to the club?


I like the idea of a secret organisation for model railways! Or was that what SMERSH stood for all along
(Secret Model Electric Railways Secretly Housed)

The situation that you describe is apparently the same as at the Redditch Model Railway Club: exact location classified, but this is the building you can expect to see when the blindfold is removed:



This is all so exciting!! MI5 and MI6 are as we speak scanning their spy satellite footage for a warehouse with the same roof design and car parking space outlines so that missiles can be locked on...

I told them not to run a Bulleid with those LNER coaches...

No not quite but it is difficult to find so its easier to take prospective new members to see the clubhouse although directions are freely given to any prospective new members wanting to see the facilities . There is very little of worth at the clubhouse but its the damage thieves cab do and I believe it did happen in the past at a previous clubhouse

Our clubhouse is also rural, so we are cautious about publishing the address.

Saddly the world is not an honest place, so we have to protect ourselves whilst balancing the need to make ourselves known to those interested in the hobby. Our website has contact details and we try to get an idea of someones "level of interest" from the initial contact.

You make light of and mock our choice to be "secretive" but if you have ever suffered the devastation of a burglary at home or work you will know how this changes your attitude to being open about information.
