7mm Narrow Gauge Association

The 7mm Narrow Gauge Association is a United Kingdom based society for railway modellers interested in modelling narrow-gauge railways in British O scale (7mm to the foot, or 1:43.5 ratio).

Scope of interest[]

The association covers modelling British narrow-gauge railways in the following gauges:

However other gauges and O scales are also accepted. For instance members modelling American narrow gauge often use On30, and Oe when modelling European prototypes.[2] While many members model British railways, prototypes from all round the world are catered for, including the railways of countries that were part of Britain's former empire.

History[]

The association was founded in 1979.[1]

Membership[]

The current membership of the association is in excess of 1000 members. Most are resident in the United Kingdom, but about 10% live overseas. The association has 6 local groups in different areas of Britain, and two groups based outside Britain.[2]

Publications[]

The association publishes a bi-monthly magazine, Narrow Lines, which is posted free to all members. Additionally the association has published a series of 5 handbooks on various aspects of modelling, and a series of 12 booklets containing scale drawings of various items of narrow-gauge rolling stock.
