Club layout with 2 circuits, suitable for analogue track power, battery or live steam. We have a lot of diverse skills & it is likely someone will be there who can help on electrical or live steam matters!

All welcome & please bring something to run and talk about!

The Hall is attached to Castle Caereinion School in the middle of the village.  It is situated just off the B4385 opposite Tynllan Farm and signposted ‘Community Centre.’

From the north, the entrance is on the right a little way after Swallows’ Meadow (Dol-y-Wennol); from the south it is at the apex of the second part of the S-bend through the village.
