New Handbook 'Going Narrow Gauge'

Now on sale is the latest handbook from the Association.

There are a number of publications available on how to build a model narrow gauge railway layout, but none really cover how to capture that elusive ‘narrow gauge look’.  The 7mm Narrow Gauge Association aims to cover that gap with a brand new handbook to help the railway modeller create an authentic narrow gauge model railway.

With experienced narrow gauge modellers such as Gordon Gravett, Chris Peacock and Geoff Thorne explaining how they capture that elusive narrow gauge ‘atmosphere’, chapters covering the variety of narrow gauge prototypes both within the UK and overseas including heritage railways, detailed data sheets and numerous layouts illustrating the narrow gauge look, this is an essential handbook for anyone attempting to model a narrow gauge railway.

Although primarily covering narrow gauge railways built to 7mm scale, the handbook is equally applicable to modellers building in other scales.  The A4, 68 page handbook is profusely illustrated in full colour throughout.

The handbook is being provided free to all current members of the Association (including those who join in the next few months).
