What we do and who we are

We are a group who model narrow-gauge railways, mainly in what is known as “009”. That is to say, we model in 4mm/ft scale (1:76), but using 9mm gauge track (‘N’ gauge) to represent railways with a gauge between 2ft. and 2ft. 6ins. We are even more flexible than this; we use ‘HO’ scale (3.5mm/ft) as well to represent gauges up to 1 metre. And our interests go beyond 4mm  or 3.5mm/ft narrow gauge modelling, to include larger or smaller scales and even standard gauge. Our common interest is narrow-gauge models running on 9mm gauge track, and we support (although we are not affiliated to) the 009 Society, with its national and international connections.

In the absence of a Heljan 2-6-2, Yeo (Stenning Kit, 1976) and Lew (Chivers, 1984) stand up for the technology of 40 years ago. I’m trying to get a version of this shot in sharper focus!                                                                                                                                   Stephen Sullivan

This Website:

At the moment I’m having difficulty with the slide shows in the ‘Layouts’ section, which are sometimes failing to upload when I update the site and which may not be appearing properly on some browsers. I shall be experimenting with some new technology but there is a lot of material and it will take some time.
