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)

Secondhand Sales

As a reminder, this section of Association Sales deals with British and Continental items in 7mm scale and does not now deal in American prototype items. For this, see the On30 Depot page.

All items offered by Association members and a price agreed and accepted will be purchased outright by the Associaton. This is a service to members and any surplus which arises, after all the costs involved have been met, goes to support the Association's activities.

Any enquiries should be addressed to the Secondhand Sales Officer, Bob Cope, at:

7 Elter Close, Rugby, CV21 1JD, U.K., or via

01788 333638 (From outside the UK: +44 1788 333638)


Suitable items may be offered to the Secondhand Sales Officer for valuation. The Sales Officer will decide whether to accept the items concerned and offer a valuation. The Sales Officer's decision is final and items will now only be purchased outright by the Association. Payment can be made to the seller by Association cheque, by bank transfer, by PayPal or, by prior arrangement, by cash at an exhibition attended by the secondhand sales stand. Items remain the property of the seller until the Association has paid for them.


The secondhand sales department attends the major narrow-gauge exhibitions and some other shows. Checking with the Show Diary will often help.

Members will find a reasonably complete and up to date list of what is available in each issue of Narrow News which can be viewed online here. Note however that the list is likely to change very frequently as stock is always changing.

As with other sales, a 10% discount is offered to current members of the Association.

Payment and Postage & Packing

Postage & packing will be charged for each order at cost. Note that orders can be arranged to be picked up at shows attended by the Secondhand Sales Officer.

Payment can be by the following methods, in Pounds Sterling (GBP) only:

  • PayPal Invoice: When you have submitted your order, we are able to issue you with a PayPal invoice. This can be most easily paid using the link supplied with it and can be paid in your local currency. Note that you do not have to have a PayPal account to use this option, but can pay by card.
  • Credit or Debit Cards: Can we remind members not to send Credit Card orders by email. A better alternative is to add your home phone number and the sales officer will ring you for the card details. If it is absolutely necessary, please do not put all of your details on the same email. For example, send half the card number in one email and the other half and the security number in another.
  • Bank transfer: Contact the sales officer as above to obtain our bank details.
  • Cheque: These should be made payable to "The 7mm Narrow Gauge Association".
