Go for the Caistor then I have no idea as I did not know there were 2 Caisters.

But If you gave where it would have helped. Sorry only trying to help.... John
I may be wrong as I very often am. John

Normally only by invite to exhibit a layout. So it's quite possible other than the hosting club other clubs there could be from further afield!
Broken? It was working when I left it!

You could try asking at your local public library. It's sometimes surprising how much information about local clubs and societies they have access to.
If you can't say anything nice about someone, don't say anything.

Caistorail is in Caistor, Lincolnshire (on the A46 Grimsby - Lincoln road, about 10 miles from Grimsby).
The secretary is Mike Hill, phone number 07503321510).
As an aside, Caistorloco (Market Place, Caistor) is one of the best stocked model shops I know despite it's small size.
