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, the premier narrow gauge model show, held every two years.  Please the gallery for a selection of images from the 2018 exhibition.

The group also hosts occasional “MEMBERS DAY” type events, usually in a village hall setting, which have proved popular.
