Hello and 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.
