We have moved! 

In order to get more space, and also have ground floor access to our premises, we have moved from Phoenix Court in Cleator Moor, to 238 Frizington Road, Frizington, Cumbria, CA26 3SN.  Come and visit us on Monday and Thursday evenings!

We are now open again for regular meetings at Frizington.  The meeting times are now on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons between about 1.30 and 3.30.  If there is sufficient interest, Thursday evening meetings will be reinstated as well.


Following a Covid 'break', the Distington talks are restarting as from Friday 18 February 2022.  Check the Events page for these Meetings . 

We now have a large collection of OO, HO and G gauge items for sale following a loft clearance.  Click here to go to our Sale Items page

New members always welcome!  Please see our Membership pages for details. 

We are now also on Facebook - check us out on this Link
