N gauge

The N gauge group within the club currently has two operating layouts that are regularly rtaken along to the annual exhibition over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

These two small N gauge layouts based on UK prototype operation. The first of these is constructed within a box and shows what can be achieved in a very small space using this scale.  This layout is very compact, but has all the main elements of small station with loco and goods facilities, as well as a continuous loop so you can sit and watch the trains go round.  The layout is designed to fit under a desk or bed and has an integral lid to protect the railway during storage and keep off the dust!

The second of the small UK based layouts is on two levels; a twin track mainline at the lower level, with connections to a quarry and a brewery; whilst on the upper level is a small branchline. At least 3 trains can be operated at the same time so you can sit and watch the trains go by, as well as allowing some shunting of wagons to the quarry and brewery.

The Club have recently built several new boards in anticipation of constructing a new modular N-Gauge layout which will be up to 24 feet long when finished.

Interested new members of whatever skill level wanting to join the N-gaugers are always welcome, the only requirement being to be enthusiastic of all thing 9mm scale!
