I am not up with the technicalities (I have no idea what Discord means), but I can say that I have often read the Drehscheibe Foren. There are a number of forums and I presume there are no problems about joining, although it might be worth doing a dry run in case some of the technical words of the joining process, which will be in German, are new to you. Despite my technical incompetence, I have joined forums in other languages (that I am familiar with) without too much trouble.

There are quite a number of German forums and one or two sites list them, but I can’t remember which I used to use. Try searching around some of the German rail magazines websites for lists.

Thanks for the recommendations.

(For what it's worth Discord doesn't mean anything specific - it's just the brand name of a particular piece of communications software which is quite popular with large communities.)
