CLYDESIDE MODEL RAILWAY CLUB

Glasgow, Scotland 

                                                Recent club nights have involved no modelling. Our attentions have been directed

                                                       to packing all of our layouts and all of our associated equipment.  

                                                    

                                                     Very soon it will all be moved to a storage unit in central Glasgow.

   If you know of any rooms, attics, basements we could rent exclusive use of for around £300  per month please contact us.


                           This week we are showing the current stage in our packing ready for transfer to storage.

   Unfortunately we will be unable to entertain visitors to club nights until we find and settle in alternative accommodation
