Provided further, that service may be had upon any common law trust or any other unincorporated association or trust of individuals designating themselves as a trust or represented by an individual as trustee, by service upon any one of such individuals as may be designated as trustee for said trust, the same as in any other civil action. Venue in such cases, in addition to that now provided, shall be the same as that provided for actions involving domestic corporations.
