'O' Gauge Clubs

Okay there are many clubs out there, but here is a list of those that have a good O gauge following. It might not be complete or definative but we will try to keep it up to date. If you are a member of a club and would like a listing then just e-mail the details and I will add them in due course. I am obviously at the mercy of these clubs for the accuracy of the contact details. I have started with Lancashire but that is just because it is local!
