Therunawaytrain is on a distinguished road
Default Where is Castorail

Hi I'm new both here and in the hobby. I'm looking to find a club to help me get started and a local hobby shop said Caistorail is my nearest but I can't seem to find them online.

I found them here http://www.modelrailwayclubs.co.uk/c...ire/caistorail but dont want to bother them if the meet miles away. I know forum rules stop me saying where i live but does anyone know where they meet?

Thanks from the new guy

Hi Joe

Firstly welcome to the forum.

No problem saying where you live. i.e. the town. Just don't give a full address or postcode etc.

UK Model Shops Directory isn't much help either! http://www.ukmodelshops.co.uk/county/clubs/Lincolnshire Why not just turn up at Caistor on a Tuesday evening? Or perhaps either call or send Mike Hill an email? I know of no club that wont mind a prospective member calling or emailing them.

Thanks for the help, butJust turning ups not an option as no where lists a location. I guess I'll just email and see, Failing that there are others listed online that I'll have to travel too.

It Says the club is at Caister. Take that to mean Caister on Sea. But you dont give a location on your profile either so cant tell if that is near you or not.

Oh sorry I must have missed that on my profile. I'm in stokesby, so yes I was assuming it was in Caistor on sea somewhere.

Hi John,

Caister-on Sea is in Norfolk - Caistor is in Lincolnshire and I think it is the latter

that the OP referred to. Still not much help for the location of the club - as has been said, try email.

Thank you all. Looks like I was miss informed about it being my closest club then. I guess the guy in the shop looked it up and made the same mistake trying to be helpful.
If anyone from that club reads this I'd suggest maybe putting some more info out there for other potential recruits.

Hi there Joe,

Good luck and welcome to the forum.

The UK Modelshops directory for Norfolk clubs is linked to in post #8 above. The original directory in post #1 but for Norfolk is here... http://www.modelrailwayclubs.co.uk/Clubs/norfolk

Yeah I'm near great yarmouth. I was thinking of just going to the exhibitions in Dereham in Feb and talking to the clubs there as I don't really know what scale I want to get into. I though that way I could speak to clubs and find a good fit for myself. Do most clubs attend these events?
