The 7mm Narrow Gauge Association aims to encourage the modelling of
narrow gauge railways at a scale of or around 7mm to 1 foot (1:43)



Picture Galleries

Here is a selection of picture galleries of layouts and individual models in our chosen scale. There are also a few examples of prototype inspiration. Simply click on the Gallery thumbnail to view and appreciate the work of many excellent modellers!

You can see a separate gallery dedicated On30 for our members who model in that scale/gauge - click here for On30 gallery

Nether End
Some pictures of a small layout 'Nether End' that has been exhibited both on its own and as part of an Association display by Roger Jones of the Surrey Area. It was initially built by Brian Cameron of the Surrey Area and exhibited under a different name. It is a good illustration of a layout in a very small space yet allowing interesting operation. Roger subsequently made a number of changes, it forming a very useful introduction to 7mm narrow gauge. See also a brief piece in the 5th edition of the Association Handbook 'Getting Started in 7mm Narrow Gauge'.

Glanrafon by Frank Sharp
Photos of Glanrafon Quarry North Wales. The huge waste tips are dwarfed by Snowdon. Even more so the seeming huge ex SAR Garrett with its train crossing the bridge in the trees at the bottom left. The North Wales Narrow Gauge Railways ran out of money at South Snowdon the ruins of which are just off picture to the left. Glanrafon quarry had to buy shares in an already bankrupt railway and give them £50 to have the bridge put in!
