The N Gauge Society - UK and Worldwide N gauge

Untitled document

Welcome to the website of the N Gauge Society (often referred to as the NGS).  The Society is a non-profit making organisation, run by volunteers for the benefit of the railway modelling hobby in general and N Gauge modellers in particular. We have been supporting and encouraging N Gauge modelling of UK and worldwide railways since 1967.  We have approaching 6,000 members in the UK and abroad, and actively welcome new members, whatever their current skill levels.

Explore some of the material here, and if you like the look of us, why not join?  Downloadable forms for postal applications are available here (Word and PDF). or use our online system:

Alternatively, why not catch us at a model railway exhibition near you?  You can join up, and perhaps even buy your first NGS wagon kit or RTR model at the same time.  See the NGS Display Stand schedule here.

N.B. Please note that, for tax reasons, neither the Society Shop nor the Display Stand is able to sell items to non-members.

Society Shop re-opens.

Temporary arrangements:

As promised before Christmas we have been working to set up a temporary Society Shop to keep things going until the new manager and the new software are in place.

The Committee have decided that (in the short term) everything currently held in stock will be made available to the membership.  A decision may be made later to discontinue items that are readily available elsewhere.

Orders may be placed either (1) by using the new online shop order facility with secure payment facilities; access it through or follow the links from;  or (2) by post, to the address below, enclosing card details or a cheque payable to N Gauge Society (use the order form received with your latest journal, or download one here).

Hard copies of the stock/price list can be requested free of charge from:

Alan Reed, Croft Cottage, Havenhouse Road, Croft, Skegness, PE24 4AR tel.01754 880797 (before 2:00pm Monday to Friday).  Lists will also be available from the Society Stand as it travels around the various exhibitions.

At the present time:

Only items in stock are listed for “trade” items.  Out of stock items will not be shown and may not be re-stocked.

All N Gauge Society own products are listed but some may be temporarily out of stock.

Modelmaster transfers and plates are still to be listed and cannot be ordered yet.

Carriage will continue to be charged at £4.00 per order.  Goods may be despatched from two locations so you may receive two separate packages but you will only be charged £4.00 per total order.

Plates and numbers are now being counted and catalogued so in due course you will be able to order directly from the list.  If it isn’t listed, at present we cannot supply it.  The list will grow as we continue to count stock, so keep checking. Further this, transfer sheets will have an image on the website as promised.

Orders for plates and transfers must be submitted in the same way (when they become available) but the postage charge will only be £1.50 per order of five items or less.  At the present time we are unable to accept a stamped addressed envelope for dispatch because order administration is in a different location to the stock.

Please note that a limited supply of plates and transfers will be available from the Stand as it attends the various exhibitions during 2015.  For the list of exhibitions that the Stand is attending please click here.

We know that the systems are still not “state of the art”.  We know that there may be teething problems.  But we are up and running!

If you need some more information then please contact us at  .  Please do NOT use this address for orders.

Can you help run the society?

N Gauge is growing, and so is the N Gauge Society.  This creates an ever-present need to spread the load from existing volunteers.  From time to time we also have specific positions we need to fill

Why not take a look at our new 'Vacancies' section to see how you can help?

Stove R

NGS Stove R - Pullman

The shop recently received stocks of the anticipated additional Stove Rs.  The price has been held the same:

  • LMS
  • Pullman
  • Engineers
  • 50 unpainted models

The unpainted versions are a new idea, which we hope will tempt members to create a livery that we have not produced.



We recently received further supplies of liveries that were out of stock:

  • NGK421 Plain Black
  • NGK422 Plain Black with Hazard Stripes

We also received two new liveries:

  • NGK 429 RfD Snow Queen
  • NGK 430 Black 'Eastfield' with Scotty Dog

45th Anniversary RTR wagon - 50' Inspection Saloon

The Society’s LMS Inspection Saloon has been voted N Gauge Coach Model of the Year for 2012 by the readers of Model Rail magazine, RM Web and MR Express magazine. This is a second consecutive victory for the NGS, as the previous year our BR Independent Snowplough won the Wagon category of the same contest (see above).

The Saloon was a comfortable winner in its class, taking 64% of the votes. The next placed model was Farish’s own BR Mk1 GUV with 23%, then the same manufacturer’s Mk1 BG with 13%.

Four of the eight launch versions are shown, from left to right:  LMS lined maroon, BR carmine and cream, BR blue grey and EWS maroon.

Remember - These models are exclusive to the NGS, and only available to members.  They are not available in shops.  If you are not yet a member, why not join us and add variety to your rolling stock with our extensive range of kits and ready to run wagons.  You can join here.
