Hello - Welcome to the fascinating and surprisingly widespread world of Narrow Gauge Railways.


Our members’ interests cover a broad spectrum, in the UK and throughout the world, including industrial narrow gauge systems, the extensive world of preservation, and the growing area of miniature railways.  


Our membership page expands on what we offer members. The regular publications provide extensive news coverage of every type of narrow gauge and miniature line at home and overseas, whether operated by steam, diesel or electric power..   Our magazine provides in-depth articles of historical interest as well as coverage of modern developments   . We also maintain an extremely extensive reference library from which members may borrow.


If you are fortunate enough to live near one of our active Area groups you will be able to attend regular meetings, and all members are invited to join us on organised visits to places of interest, and our AGM.


Since the formation of our Society in 1951, interest in narrow gauge railways has grown in leaps and bounds, and this has been reflected in the expansion of our membership. What was envisaged as being a small correspondence group of specialist enthusiasts has grown to a large international society with a truly global outlook.

  For the exchange of news and views, the we recommend you join internet 'Yahoo Groups'  

For those who are not aware, members of these Groups are encouraged to submit observations and information - you can search for any information you want and ask other members for information and help. This method of communicating railway sightings, for instance, reaches a wide like-minded audience and even if you have a difficult question, there is almost always someone out there who has the answer.


Membership Offer 2014 for New Members:

It has been decided that all those joining the Society in 2014 will receive a copy of one of the Society’s substantial ‘special’ issues of The Narrow Gauge magazine free of charge.


This 'special' will be "The Miniature Locomotives of David Curwen", pictured below, a 120 page full colour publication covering the miniature locomotives built by David Curwen over a period of more than half a century.



 An overview of his work includes every one of his larger locomotives together  with over 146 photographs. There is a full history of each locomotive and it includes locomotives built by both himself and others. The normal retail price for this is 9.95
