Are you a member of 16mm Today. They have a list of meet organisers in all areas. Just put a search in and you will find some useful information there.

Hi Johnto, it is true that some areas deem devoid of any other garden railway enthusiasts, but that is because we are fairly secretive about advertising what we do. When I began my build here in West Wales...... where is that they all say???, I thought I was alone too, however, we now have our own thriving group of about ten railways and we exchange visits regularly. Rod's suggestion is a good way to start, however, initial contact doesn't always get a response.
Try to visit as many local exhibitions as possible and talk to operators and organisers.... there is often a man who knows a man!
Persevere, and good luck.
The best things in life are free.... so why am I doing this?
