Two useful directories of UK model shops, railway clubs, exhibitions, events, amongst other things; a very useful resource:
Lance Mindheim's Miami based layout...what realism!
One of our club members, James, has a blog about the N-scale model railroad equipment that he produces by 3D printing. Some amazing modelling skills in use and a video gallery many of which show trains on Solent Summit.
Poole & District Model Railway Society

Hampshire Insulation Products
Follow signs to Marwell Zoo and they're about 200 yards from the Zoo entrance on the right-hand side (after you pass the Zoo entrance on the left-hand side) approaching from the West.
You'll need to ring first so they can cut the foam to order, and tell them it's for model making.
