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.

Holbeach organised its own “Tracks to the Trenches” event while appearing at the real “Tracks to the Trenches” in July 2018. Left to Right, Bachmann Baldwin 4-6-0, Langley Hunslet 4-6-0 (the restored “real” loco was making its public debut a few yards away), Minitrains 0-8-0.

This Website:

Time has been very tight recently and I’m hardly able to keep up with updating this website, let alone migrating the whole thing to a new server. So you will have to put up with Serif technology (which, frankly, isn’t at all bad - it’s a great shame it’s no longer supported) - for the time being. If you have any difficulty with the slide shows, you may need to upload or to enable Flash viewer.
