Are there any local model engineering clubs to me in Stockton On Tees. I have found a club in Tyneside and one in Sunderland but looking for something more local.

There is one at Darlington with their HQ at Tees Cottage Pumping Station on Connistone Road. I don't have any other details but they should be easy enough to find.

I know of the one at Teess cottage pumping station but its more aligned to locos when I paid it a visit last year. I live at Marton & would like to correspond with anyone in the same locale, Nunthorpe, Ormesby ?

Try your local Men's shed. They might not be metal oriented at the moment but probably have some members who are interested as it is an industrial area. You could use them as a base and put an advert on here to ask more MEs to come along.

Same applies to the Tees Cottage situation. Just because they have a track it doesn't mean that is all they do and if you only talk to the engine driver when he is busy firing the loco he is naturally going to be rather preoccupied with that and not able to give you the bigger picture.

Middlesbrough Men's Shed

Bradhope Road, Middlesbrough TS3 7BG, United Kingdom

We are open every Tuesday morning from 10am - 12pm. Sarah Marrison or Laura Ince-Henry Groundwork North East and Cumbria 01642 815663

Bazyle - I am all for these mens clubs and find your site which clearly says MEN ONLY. So now I am wondering why does it have a female manager?

You are not a million miles from the Ryedale Model engineering railway at Gilling East, They must have one of the best if not the best GL5 railways in England. They run steam trains most week ends between Easter to September. Twice a year they run main line days with 30- 40, 5"gauge Steam and Diesel loco running a strict time table. A brilliant time to see the best loco's you will see anywhere.

Not knowing what a GL5 was, and being curious by nature, I had to have a look

That is impressive to say the least. Well pleased you posted.
