Welcome to Wessex Narrow Gauge Modellers & Narrow Gauge South

Welcome to Wessex Narrow Gauge Modellers website.  This is the online home of WNGM and Narrow Gauge South, the south of England’s leading small scale narrow gauge model railway exhibition.

Our next event is Narrow Gauge South 2020

We return again to Barton Peveril College for the next Narrow Gauge South model railway exhibition to be held on Saturday 18th April 2020.  The poster below names some of the 30 or so layouts which are booked to attend.  Together with with trade and society support we expect our 20th show to be another great event.

The last exhibition resonated well with families and we expect this to continue this year and welcome you to our “family friendly” Narrow Gauge railway exhibtion.

More details will be posted here in the coming weeks and you can visit the main exhibition pages here


Whilst you are here, why not take a moment to read about the WESSEX NARROW GAUGE MODELLERS, meetings, members layouts and our ramblings across the country visiting “the real thing”.    WNGM Members also receive a monthly newsletter – all this for £5 a year subs!  See the Wessex Narrow Gauge Modellers page for more details and how to join the group.

WNGM’s main event is NARROW GAUGE SOUTH, probably the premier narrow gauge model show in the South of England, held every two years.  Please visit the 2018 exhibition pages for a report on the 2018 exhibition or the gallery for a selection of images from the event.  Don’t forget to visit this year’s exhibition on 18th April 2020.

In addition to Narrow Gauge South the group supports a OO9 Society Members Open Day each year at Colehill, nr Wimborne.
