Narrow Gauge Group

Postby Armchair Modeller » Mon Aug 22, 2011 5:09 pm

Does the Narrow Gauge Group still exist in any shape or form?

I see it is listed as a group on the Society web pages. There is also an intro page there.

It is not mentioned, as far as I can see, on the Blue Sheets though.

The reason for this is that Paul Holmes allowed his membership to lapse this year, and although he has now renewed he was not a member at the time the Blue Sheet was produced. The Blue Sheet is generated from the membership database and so if an AGO or other office holder is not a member, they don't appear. The BS is produced each year immediately following the AGM so that it can be circulated with the July edition of Scalefour News.

I'm not aware of any recent activity (last several years) by the NGSG. This group was started many years ago by Lynden Emery, sadly no longer with us, and Paul took over in 2005 I believe, and although I'm unsure of the status of the group Paul is an active narrow gauge modeller, and it may well be a good idea for you to contact him.

If you contact me by e-mail or PM I will let you have Paul's e-mail address. I won't include it here as this is a publicly accessible area of the forum.

I’ve received an enquiry from a past member asking if there is an active 4mm Narrow Gauge Study Group within the Society.
So, if there is, or you are interested in resurrecting it, then please let me know.
Many thanks
Steve

Paul Holmes' Borth Y Gest was at Scaleforum in 2007. There is You Tube footage of the layout:
