Membership Benefits

As a member you get access to all of the newsletters & journals (current issue 273) and every member receives a quarterly newsletter containing articles on all aspects of gauge 1 modelling including constructional advice for novices and experienced workers alike, write-ups on previous events and an active letters column. New Product information and Trade advertisements together with Members’ Sales & Wants make for an interesting read.

New members receive printed details of the recommended Standard Dimensions for Gauge 1. A Membership directory plus other useful information is also provided together with the current copy of the Newsletter & Journal to complete the New Members’ pack.

Details of forthcoming local and National events as wells GTG’s (get-togethers) at member’s running tracks are also published in the newsletter. Participating in these is an excellent way to garner running and modelling tips!

Within the UK there are several local groups who arrange Summer programmes of informal running sessions at members’ tracks. Winter activities may include layout construction, a film show or a speaker on some aspect of Model Railway or Railway interest.

Gauge One is often described as being a combination of Railway Modelling and Model Engineering. Happily the blend of skills and interests makes for an Association with a flavour all of its own.
