The Yorkshire Area Group of the N Gauge Society will be holding its annual open weekend on the 21st and 22nd of October in York.


We will have two large layouts set up. Come and train spot on our scenic DC test track Guys Cutting where you'll see trains showing the wide range of eras and locations of interest to our members. Alternatively, indulge in some shunting on our extensive FreeMo DCC layout. Visitors are welcome to bring models to run on either layout.
In addition to the two group layouts there will also be a number of layouts being exhibited by group members whilst others will be showing their latest modelling projects including a Motorail terminal and projects involving 3D printing and laser cut plastic.

We have a wide range of interests ranging from RTR to kit and scratch building; We have modellers interested in British, Continental, American, Japanese and even Malaysian prototypes dating from the steam era to today's railways.


If you want to learn more about DCC, 3D printing, electrics, signalling, locomotive maintenance, wood work, painting, scenic work or just about anything else model railway related we can usually provide some help and advice.
