Hi there
This section is for posting general club questions.
It is not for specific club questions or club news.
It is pemissable to ask what clubs are local to you.
regards David

Chris H - I'm a member of Yeovil and District. they are mainly locomotive orientated but very pleasant (not that they are mutually exclusive). Have a range of interesting talks and a club loco you can learn to drive on.
I have to admit, I have been so keen on building I haven't gone to a meet, but they are a nice bunch.
The track is on the Crewkerne side of Yeovil on the Westlands airfield.

Hi Meyrick,
Thanks for the info - I thought with the "Westland' name there that a tie-up with the firm and airfield was on the cards!  I know the site OK - we live in a little village a few miles towards Crewkerne from Yeovil just off the A30.
At the moment I am busy with building work renovating my workshop, an old Ham Stone building with random sized lumps of stone built like a dry stone wall only with mud and mortar, then there will be the electrics to do, and the work benches, and finally setting up my limited amount of workshop tools, the lathe being the major job, before I am in a position to go to meetings etc.  I'm winning, but it's a way to go yet!  I suspect like you initially I will be more heavily involved in building bits and pieces so it may be a while before I am able to be in a 'join a club' mode, but it is useful to know what is out there and where.

Well if you need a hand with the heavy stuff or whatever.
I just liked a morning trolling round some of the kit, and talking to people, just to see how things were done.
And to maintain a bit of enthusiasm - to see finished items working!!!!!!!!!!

Hi John,
I see Pickering Experimental Engineering & Model Society was not mentioned.
Our members are into many branches of model engineering including the following Traction engines, I.C. engines, Boats, Locomotives,Clocks, Tools, Cars, Motorcycles, Hot Air engines, Stationary engines and the full size ones.
Its not a massive club but friendly and members are interested in all engineering projects.
