THE MERSEY AND WEST LANCS 16MM AREA GROUP

Welcome to our website!



We are part of a network of groups affiliated to the Association of 16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers.

We run narrow-gauge trains, on 32 and 45mm gauge tracks, in the garden and indoors.

The locomotives are mainly gas-fired live steam and battery-electric, with a wide variety of rolling stock.



Our group has a nominal strength in excess of 60 (if the circulation list is anything to go by).

Fortunately our normal attendance is somewhat smaller - our gardens are not that big!

Our railways have a scale of 1:19, which on 32mm track corresponds to 2ft gauge on full-size railways.



  • Loco sizes range from small industrial diesels that can sit in the palm of your hand, to multi-cylindered monsters that need special cradles to carry them.

    Likewise our railways go from short end-to-end lines to large layouts with numerous loops and sidings.
